    Overleaf Launches New Platform for Fast and Easy Collaborative Writing and Publishing of Research Papers

    Improved functionality supports seamless and effortless collaboration between millions of authors across the world.

    September 26, 2018 — London, UK — Overleaf has updated its popular collaborative writing and publishing tool to offer enhanced collaboration and editing features. Bringing together the best features of both the original Overleaf and ShareLaTeX tools into a single cloud-based platform, the new Overleaf has been designed to enable students and researchers at academic institutions, industrial laboratories, technology companies and publishers to benefit from a powerful centralized documentation process.

    We have two exciting additions to Overleaf v2 to highlight in this update—Rich Text mode and the ability to add linked files (from other projects, or from external sources)—which were released recently in amongst many other improvements behind-the-scenes!

    Since Overleaf joined forces with ShareLaTeX last year, our goal has been to create an online editor that outshines both ShareLaTeX and Overleaf. One that is simple to get started with for beginners, has powerful collaboration features for teams, and that seamlessly integrates with the other tools and publishers you work with.

    We’ve come a long way since we started last July, and there’s still a lot of work to do, but we’re excited to announce that as of this month you can try out the new Overleaf v2 editor!

    This week is Docker’s 5th birthday, so we thought we’d mark the occasion with a rundown of how we’ve been using this great technology at Overleaf. Overleaf also celebrated its 5th birthday at the start of this year, and we’ve been using Docker since its very early days.

    Earlier this week I was delighted to be able to attend the launch of the new Dimensions product from our colleagues at Digital Science. Held at the Wellcome Trust building in central London, the evening was a mix of invited talks and panel discussions from speakers across the research workflow, along with a live demo of the new product from Daniel Hook and Christian Herzog who have led this project from its inception. The reaction in the room was very positive and engaged, which was all the more impressive given that this was an after work event on a Monday night!

    At its core, Dimensions is connecting together the data behind the different elements of research – including grants, publications, citations, clinical trials and patents – and allowing the user to query that data in a very flexible way to make it as broad or specific as they need. For researchers it provides immediate, free access to search and citation data for 86 million articles and books.
