LaTeX Collaborative Authoring Tool on Overleaf Platform
ACM has partnered with Overleaf, a free cloud-based, collaborative authoring tool, to provide an ACM LaTeX authoring template.
- Overleaf is a collaborative platform: Authors can easily invite colleagues to collaborate on their document.
- Authors can write using 'Rich Text mode' or regular 'Source Mode.' This is useful for cross-disciplinary collaboration in the cases where some authors prefer to write in LaTeX while others might prefer a word processing format.
- The platform automatically compiles the document while an author writes, so the author can see what the finished file will look like in real time.
- The template allows authors to easily extract manuscripts from the Overleaf platform. (Please note that there is no direct link from Overleaf to TAPS gateway--authors must still retrieve their files from Overleaf and prepare the ZIP file for delivery to TAPS.)
