600,000 users on Overleaf make over 2 billion edits!
By John Hammersley

We’re excited to announce that Overleaf now has over 600,000 registered users! And not only that… together you've made over 2 billion edits across all the projects you've worked on over the past 4 years. That's simply amazing!

For those of you wondering what 2 billion edits looks like, it's equivalent to around 11.5 billion pages compiled – so over four years we've compiled (on average) 100 pages each second! Or, to put it another way, if you printed off all of those pages and stacked them up, you'd have a pile 9,000km high – 1000 times the height of Mount Everest!

We've come a long way since it was just John Lees-Miller and I at the start of it all back in 2013... cue artistic shot of two explorers looking upwards on Mt. Everest – alas no, this isn't John and I :)

Cambridge, UK – Friday, January 13, 2017: eLife is integrating new authoring tools into its submission system to give authors more choice about how they submit their work.

eLife, the non-profit initiative inspired by research funders and led by scientists, aims to help scientists accelerate discovery by operating a platform for research communication that encourages and recognises the most responsible behaviours in science. eLife is now working with Overleaf, Manuscripts.app, PubRef and Authorea, to allow authors to write and submit research to the journal as quickly and easily as possible.

How to write in Markdown on Overleaf
By Lian Tze Lim

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!).
