You can also submit your paper directly to a number of journals and other editorial and review services via the publish menu in the editor. Simply open the publish menu from any document and follow the appropriate 'Submit to ...' link.

A quick way to share your course templates or lecture notes is to publish them in the Overleaf gallery. You can publish any project from Overleaf to the gallery in just a few clicks.

Auto-compile helps users new to LaTeX to find errors in their syntax quickly and easily, and encourages them to fix them as they go, to produce clean, error-free documents.
