Authorea is the leading collaborative platform to read, write, discuss, and publish research.



We founded Authorea in late 2012 with the mission of accelerating scientific discovery. We were growing frustrated with how cumbersome it was to collaboratie on research papers. Why couldn't the internet age deliver modern collaborative research tools?
