"In Word it’s really easy to leave comments, make track changes, etc, but it doesn’t scale – if working with 10 people you end up with a massive chain of emails.
LaTeX is a more comprehensive tool, but it’s too hard for non-comp scientists – if you don’t know git, track changes is hard, etc. Overleaf provides a nice balance."

"I was looking for a collaborative tool for writing LaTeX scientific documents, journal papers and other texts.
My PhD co-advisor is a professor at Imperial College London and I am based in Barcelona, so exchanging latex files for paper reviews through email was not optimal.
Then, we found Overleaf through the website, and since then, we are using it to write different documents in a simple collaborative way, editing the same source file."

" When you start using LaTeX you have the feeling that you can focus on the content of your work rather than worrying about formatting and other issues that just get in your way. Overleaf brings this feeling back." – Francisco Orlandini
