Congratulations! The Universidad Nacional de Colombia was the overall winner in the 2016 Overleaf Campus Challenge, and we're delighted to provide the prize of free, one-year Overleaf Pro accounts and LaTeX resources to all members of the university until April 2017.
Overleaf is designed to make the process of writing, editing and producing your research papers and project reports much quicker for both you and your collaborators. Overleaf can also be linked to other services such as Mendeley, Git and Plot.ly to best fit into your workflow.
Claim your free 10GB Pro account on Overleaf by signing up (or signing in) below. You'll need to verify an appropriate university email address in order to receive your free Pro account.
Welcome to your quick start guide to Overleaf. We've put together some useful resources in the sections below, and if you have any questions about how to get started please let us know and we'll be happy to help!
If you'd like to dive straight into the editor, simply click the button to create a new paper using our quick-start template. A short tutorial will walk you through the main features to quickly get you started.
If you're new to LaTeX, we've put together a free online course to help you learn the basics. If you have never used LaTeX before, or if it has been a while and you would like a refresher, this is the place to start.
Overleaf also provides a set of teaching tools. Simply click the button to set up a group on Overleaf for your class. You'll then be able to add students to your group by email address.
Overleaf is an online collaborative writing and publishing tool. It allows you to collaborate online with coauthors and greatly simplifies the process of creating and writing a LaTeX document. Overleaf's custom templates allow authors to submit their papers directly to many journals and repositories via Overleaf, including the arXiv.
If you've already confirmed your UNAL email address on Overleaf, you should have automatically been upgraded to Pro. You can check your status in the How to Join section above. If you think you've correctly added your affiliation but haven't been upgraded, please get in touch and we'll look into it for you.
At the end of the free year, if UNAL does not wish to continue to provide the institutional account, you may choose to continue as individual Overleaf Pro subscriber (current cost $4/mo for students), or your account will revert to the Overleaf Free plan. Any data or papers saved in Overleaf will continue to be accessible.
