Markdown is a light-weight markup language (get it? 😉) that lets you write up something in plain text with some very simple rules, and then transform it to formatted outputs, e.g. HTML. It’s very popular among software developers and programmers, exactly because of its simplicity (and might I add, perfect for note-taking too!).
Partnership between Overleaf and Cambridge University Press provides a new academic authoring experience
London, UK and Boston, USA – November 30th, 2016: Three journals to provide authors with Overleaf’s cloud-based writing and collaborative features and streamlined submission process - Overleaf, an innovative provider of scientific writing and publishing tools, today announced a partnership with Cambridge University Press (CUP) - the publishing business of the University of Cambridge.
I am a researcher in physics at CNRS and I have been writing latex documents for more than twenty years: writing articles, reports and also latex-presentations with Beamer, both in English and French.
Overleaf connects to many journals and repositories to streamline the publishing process.
Wellcome has launched an open research publishing platform which will enable their grantees to rapidly publish all outputs from their research. They use state-of-the-art services developed by and integrated with F1000Research which support faster research outputs, reproducibility and transparency - this includes integration with Overleaf for authoring services and editorial workflow. The platform will allow Wellcome grantees to publish a wide variety of outputs from standard research articles and data sets, through to null and negative results.
