Increase author satisfaction & reduce editorial headaches

Overleaf is designed to provide authors and publishers with the tools to effectively write, collaborate, submit, and manage an article through to publication—complementing existing project and editorial management software.

Find out more about our different products and services below, or read through a selection of publisher case studies on successful uses of Overleaf in different settings.

A comprehensive authoring collaboration tool, including publisher-specific template development or enhancement, options for “built in” automated pre-submission checks, author help desk and support, and publisher-specific simplified submission links into your submission system or to your submission web portal.

Overleaf LaTeX Validation Service

The Overleaf LaTeX Validation Service allows third parties to use the Overleaf technology and servers to handle all of their LaTeX compilations automatically, via a managed API. This allows organizations to outsource the management and overhead of LaTeX technology upkeep, and better ensure that LaTeX documents compile correctly using the latest LaTeX versions and packages. By using Overleaf for compilation and validation, you’re providing your communities and teams with access to a state-of-the-art LaTeX installation – one which has compiled over 15 billion pages since 2013 – but without any of the management overhead.

Overleaf Commons

An Overleaf subscription service for organizations to provide Overleaf Professional accounts to their members and staff. This service provides streamlined, branded enrollment, a customized resource portal, user training and platform and template analytics/metrics.

Overleaf Group Subscriptions

A set number of Overleaf Collaborator or Professional accounts for members and staff. Group subscriptions include a team management dashboard to add and remove team members, Centralized billing and admin, and an option to reassign licenses as needed.

Overleaf provides publishers with an innovative, easy to implement authoring and submission solution – providing a valuable author resource and greatly increasing author satisfaction. At the same time, Overleaf can relieve the burdens that LaTeX and templated submissions can put on your editorial and production staff.

Prior to the integration with Overleaf, F1000Research could not easily accept LaTeX submissions. Now, most F1000Research LaTeX submissions use Overleaf for their writing process, with approx 10-15% of all submissions coming in via the Overleaf template and submission link.

I’m always glad when I open up a new submission and see that the authors have used Overleaf to prepare their manuscript. It makes it easier for me to evaluate the manuscript, and I know reviewers appreciate the easy-to- navigate format. I wish all authors would use Overleaf to format their submissions.
