Tune into the latest Digital Science webinar, “The Connected Culture of Collaboration” on Thursday 6th April at 4pm BST / 11am ET.
With our next #FuturePub just around the corner (it's next week!), we thought we take this opportunity to take a glimpse into the possible future of science and publishing tech a few days early. Step forward Figures, HackScience and HipDynamics - all three are winners of the latest Digital Science Catalyst Grant.

Zur Info, die deutschsprachigen Berichte notiere ich hier: http://texwelt.de/blog/category/dante/
At the DANTE meeting, Günter Partosch continued. His second topic was: headings. Headings are for: Structuring and sectioning of texts Visual indication Cross-referencing There are various things that can be adjusted: Size Appearance such as font and decoration Distance before … Continue reading →
The afternoon of the DANTE meeting day 1 starts. After lunch in the canteen, Adelheid Grob explained and demonstrated new and interesting packages, for fun with LaTeX. Bewitched mathematics: the package halloweenmath replaces math symbols by witches and pumpkins and offers more … Continue reading →
Right now, from March 22 until March 24, the DESY in Zeuthen near Berlin hosts the meeting of the German speaking TeX users DANTE. I travelled yesterday evening with the train to Berlin and then to Zeuthen. The DESY is just a few … Continue reading →
Monday night was definitely a night for cool graphs! A huge thank you to everyone who attended #FuturePub 10 on Monday for making it such a great event – it was the largest crowd we've ever had at #FuturePub, and I've never seen the pizza go so fast!
I started off the new year meeting mathematicians from all over America by representing Overleaf at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Atlanta, GA. Overleaf was a first-time sponsor at JMM 2017.
I'm delighted to announce that today, Overleaf has released a new report which takes an in-depth look at active collaborative research patterns. Rather than examining post-published collaboration patterns, “The Connected Culture of Collaboration” explores how real-time information on collaboration can provide insights in collaboration patterns on national, state and institution-level scales. Supported and contributed to by Digital Science, the report features a number of thought leadership pieces and includes a foreword from Laurel Haak, Executive Director, ORCID. The report focuses on the varying aspects of collaboration: how collaboration is valued in science, the role of university libraries in research communication, and how the growth of open access facilitates collaboration.
LaTeX3 code snapshot (SVN 6984) released to CTAN Joseph recently submitted the following updates of LaTeX3 material to CTAN. xparse package Adjustments to xparse to allow document commands to continue to function inside csnames: note that the team expect to give a clear statement on the scope of use of document commands in the near future \NewExpandableDocumentCommand and related commands have been added to xparse \IfValue(TF) is now marked as stable There have been some questions about the (removed) k-type argument: see StackExchange question for some transitional code (note that the replacement e-type is experimental) xfp package New package to provide a document level interface to the LaTeX3 FPU: \fpeval expl3 programming interface New \tl_range:nnn function Reduction in use of \c_<number> constants in favour of explicit numbers l3build system Normalisation of lines from luaotfload added Better performance of cmdcheck target when working with file bundles As usual, this may take a day or so to propagate.
Videos from the 2016 TUG conference, Toronto are online Most of the talks of the TUG conferences 2016 in Toronto got recorded and are now online at Zeeba TV. Two talks at that conference have been given by Frank: Alice goes floating — global optimized pagination (near the end of the video the audio unfortunately failed) Honoring the life and work of Sebastian Rahtz The related articles and slide material can be found on the project publication page.
Just over four years ago we began one of our first collaborations – working with Stefan Kottwitz of the LaTeX Community forums and sites such as TeXample.net and pgfplots.net to provide a direct way for users of those sites to open up code examples directly in Overleaf (then called WriteLaTeX). To get an idea of how it works, try clicking on the image below. It will open up in Overleaf for immediate editing online, just as if you'd clicked on the "Open in Overleaf" link on the example itself.
We’re excited to let you know that the two journals of the International Glaciological Society, Journal of Glaciology and Annals of Glaciology, are beginning a partnership with Overleaf. If you’re thinking of submitting to either of the journals, Overleaf is now a freely available option for writing your article.
We're excited to announce that the Overleaf Teaching Tools are now available as part of the new and improved Pro+Teach license. The teaching toolkit allows you to quickly and easily create assignments on Overleaf to send out to students; these assignments can then be completed online on Overleaf and submitted back to you with a single quick for marking and review.
