What is Overleaf?

FREE Scientific Authoring Tool for Purdue Students, Faculty, and Staff

Overleaf is an online collaborative scientific writing and publishing tool. It is designed to make the process of writing, editing, and producing scientific papers much quicker for both authors and publishers.

The Purdue Graduate School is sponsoring a free 1 year trial of Overleaf for all students, faculty, and staff who would like to use a collaborative, online LaTeX/Rich Text editor for their projects.

Some of the features of Overleaf include:

    • Online collaboration in Rich Text or LaTeX editing. Easily switch between either mode.
    • Real-time collaboration in your browser for sharing and editing projects with authorized users. You can remove collaborators at any time.
    • Real-time preview of projects to review your document while editing and writing - type on the left and see your finished document on the right.
    • Integrated, streamlined publishing allows you to publish immediately and directly to the journal of your choice with an integrated submission system to dozens of publishing partners - more coming in 2016.
    • Purdue resource portal available - including Purdue templates, FAQs, and resource links.
