STEM Fellowship on Overleaf

Overview Quick Start Templates FAQ & Help


Overleaf is happy to partner with the STEM Fellowship to provide our LaTeX authoring tool, resources, templates and training materials to its students.

Overleaf is a collaborative scientific writing, editing and publishing platform based on LaTeX. Think of it as Google Docs™ – but for scientists! You can easily write and collaborate on documents by choosing from any of our 3000 templates, or by uploading your own LaTeX document. As you write, Overleaf automatically composes the document for you – in real-time – showing you what your finished document will look like on the right side of the screen. And you can choose to write in either RichText or LaTeX mode – depending on your preference. Share the document link with your friends and colleagues to enable multiple people to work on the document at the same time.
