Using Overleaf for Writing and Teaching in LaTeX

Using Overleaf for Writing and Teaching in LaTeX
If you use (or would like to use) the LaTeX document preparation system to write scholarly articles for publication, you may want to consider Overleaf at, which allows authors to use LaTeX to write, edit and share their work in an online interface. With the integrated real-time previewer in this LaTeX editor, you can see how your final document looks as you type, which serves as an excellent learning tool, and the rich text mode renders headings, formatting and equations directly in the editor, which is particularly helpful for those unfamiliar with LaTeX. Errors and warnings are shown as you work, making it easier to resolve problems as they arise.

When you are writing an article in collaboration with other authors, you can easily share the paper in progress with coauthors so that they can review, edit and comment on the draft. Changes made by collaborators you authorise are integrated into the document so that the most recent version is available to all coauthors, but you can also save your document before sharing it in case you need to restore the earlier version. The sharing feature of Overleaf is therefore an excellent tool for scholarly collaborators whether they are working closely at the same institution or at a distance from different universities and countries. Templates that provide automatic formatting of articles in the styles required by specific journals are available on the site, and papers can also be submitted directly to open-access journals partnered with Overleaf.

Overleaf is not just for writing articles, however. Templates are available for a variety of different projects – theses, presentations, CVs, lab reports, newsletters and others – and users can also create their own templates. Teachers can use Overleaf to present interactive demonstrations in the classroom and provide students with assignments in templates so that students can simply click on a link to create their own copies, which they can then complete and hand in. Course packages allow instructors to distribute and collect assignments, as well as keep track of their students’ work.

Individual users of Overleaf can choose a free option or (for a small monthly fee) the Pro or Pro+ plan, each of which features extra benefits, including a publishing plan with PeerJ ( Students receive a 50% discount on the Pro plan, and course packages for teachers include Pro plans for both instructors and students, with the exact cost varying according to the number of students involved.
