Case Study: An Introduction to Code Ocean—Creating and Uploading Content into Overleaf
By Graham Douglas

Code Ocean is a cloud-based computational reproducibility platform that provides researchers and developers with an easy way to share, discover and run code published in academic journals and conferences.

In this Case Study article we show how files produced by algorithms and projects published on Code Ocean can be uploaded into an Overleaf LaTeX document. We also demonstrate that Code Ocean can be used as an external platform for producing a wide range of programmatically-generated content specifically for use within Overleaf LaTeX documents.

TeX Tables: How TeX Calculates Spanned Column Widths
By Graham Douglas

Producing tables in TeX or LaTeX can be quite time-consuming, especially for tables that contain entries which span multiple columns—these can often produce quite unexpected results. Using an extensive collection of annotated TeX tables (in SVG format) we explain the calculations that TeX uses to define the width of columns containing spanned entries (e.g., for table headings). By exploring (and explaining) a few key concepts we hope this article helps to make typesetting TeX tables just a little less frustrating and mysterious.
