Q: How to compare Authorea, Overleaf, ShareLaTeX, Papeeria, LaTexBase, and Typeset?
Hi, Thanks for viewing my question. I'm looking for a detailed review of the above tools mentioned in the question. I intend to decide which tool would be the right choice to write a research paper with ease. I don't have much time left and I'd avoid learning advanced LaTeX (if that's possible). Thanks, Debdut P.S.: Links to the tools mentioned: https://www.overleaf.com https://www.sharelatex.com https://papeeria.com https://www.authorea.com https://latexbase.com https://typeset.io
Overleaf (previously WriteLaTeX) is an online LaTeX and Rich Text collaborative writing and publishing tool that makes the whole process of writing, editing, and publishing scientific documents much quicker and easier. ShareLaTeX is an online LaTeX editor that allows real-time collaboration and online compiling of projects to PDF format. Papeeria is a collaborative online LaTeX editor. It is free, and it runs everywhere, on desktops, iOS and Android, and on most of the modern browsers. Authorea is an online collaborative writing tool that allows researchers to write, cite, collaborate, host data and publish. It has been described as “Google Docs for Scientists”.
It would be difficult to give a detailed review of each of these tools on this forum, but the following articles can help you form a fair idea about them:
