Overleaf is a collaborative cloud-based LaTeX editor used for writing, editing and publishing scientific documents.[1][2] It partners with a wide range of scientific publishers to provide official journal LaTeX templates, and direct submission links.[3][4][5]

Overleaf was originally launched in 2012 as WriteLaTeX by the company WriteLaTeX Limited, co-founded by John Hammersley and John Lees-Miller.[6][7][8][9][10] Both are mathematicians and were inspired by their own experiences in academia to create a better solution for collaborative scientific writing.[11][12] They started developing WriteLaTeX from 2011.[13] They launched the beta version of Overleaf on the 16th of January 2014 at their first #FuturePub event held at the British Library in London.[14][15]

On the 20th of July 2017, Overleaf acquired ShareLaTeX to create a combined community of over two million users.[16][17][18] This led to the creation of Overleaf v2, combining original features from both into a single cloud-based platform hosted at overleaf.com.[19][18]

Overleaf was selected as one of the ten teams who participated to the 2013 Summer's Bethnal Green Ventures (BGV) accelerator programme.[20][21][22] That program started on the 1st of July 2013 and lasted for 3 months.[23][24][25] The Demo Day of that BGV 2013 Summer program was held on the 19th of September 2013.[26]

The company received strategic investment from Digital Science in 2014.[27][28][29][30] Overleaf won Innovative Internet Business at the 2014 Nominet Internet Awards,[31] and featured 99th in SyndicateRoom's 2018 list of Britain's top 100 fastest-growing business.[32]

Overleaf has been discussed as a tool for writing scientific publications in Nature,[33] Science,[34] Red Hats opensource.com[35] and the German IT magazine heise online.[36] "In 2017, CERN, Europe’s particle-physics laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland, adopted Overleaf as its preferred collaborative authoring platform."[33]

Overleaf provides templates for submission to scientific journals and conferences. For example the IEEE[37] and Springer[38] (incl. Nature[39]) mention the possibility for submission using Overleaf.
