Getting Started: Understanding Overleaf Features

Overleaf is a collaborative writing and publishing environment, like Google Docs, but for projects that utilize the typesetting language LaTeX. This is powerful and incredibly helpful tool for us at LetPub, as many of our researchers take advantage of the neat, organized functions that LaTeX offers. This includes the “inline” typing of variables and equations for engineering and mathematics, pre-made templates from high impact journals, and various ways to customize the organization of a manuscript. Overleaf is a free tool that lets authors create, edit and share their scientific ideas easily online using LaTeX, a comprehensive and powerful tool for scientific writing.

Overleaf is unique in its field as it allows many collaborators on one document, with the ability to read and edit not only in LaTeX, but in rich text formats (which is “basically” how Word displays its documents). Thus, those who have used LaTeX and those who have not can access the document with ease.

On the Overleaf site users can find a LaTeX template created specifically for LetPub authors. This is a basic journal article template that includes metadata fields for multiple authors, affiliations and keywords, and can be used to prepare a draft of your manuscript for submission directly to us at LetPub. Note: It is also set up to use the lineno package for line numbers; these can be turned on by adding the 'lineno' option to the document class command.

When your draft is ready, simply click the "Submit to LetPub" option in the top bar of the Overleaf editor and follow the instructions to submit your manuscript.
