Features of Overleaf: 

  • Real-time collaboration in your browser for sharing and editing protected projects with authorized users. You can add and remove collaborators at any time.
  • Real-time preview of projects to review your document while editing and writing.
  • Immediate reporting of errors and warnings as you write, so you can catch issues early, and it shows them inline, so you don't have to find them in the LaTeX log.
  • Automatic typesetting of bibliographies within the Overleaf window: no need to separately compile bibliography (.bib) files.
  • Integrated, streamlined publishing allows you to publish immediately and directly to the journal of your choice with an integrated submission system to over a dozen publishing partners.
  • Create 'Protected Projects' for added security. You can authorize selected users to have access and can add & remove collaborators at any time.
