Editage Insights | May 18, 2015 | 16,304 views

Donald Samulack, President, US Operations, Editage, Cactus Communications, in conversation with Dr. John Hammersley, Co-founder and CEO of Overleaf at the Digital Science office in London.

In the first part of this interview series, Dr. Hammersley shares the basic features of Overleaf, a cloud-based collaborative writing and publishing platform that support multiple formats and integrates the journal publication workflow.

This second segment in the series of four video snippets covers Overleaf as a platform that enables collaboration across all stakeholders in publishing, from authors and supervisors to peer reviewers and journal editors. Overleaf also supports auto correction in LaTeX, content in multiple languages, and creation of journal publishing templates. The typesetting features of Overleaf allow authors to see what the typeset version will look like. In addition to including templates of partner journals Overleaf allows users to upload templates of their choice, making Overleaf a community-based model.

Full disclosure: Editage has collaborated with Overleaf to enable Overleaf authors to directly transfer manuscripts to Editage for its entire range of language editing services. However, this interview has been conducted independently by Editage Insights and poses no commercial conflict of interest.
