Common questions about individual plans.

What is the difference between a private article and a public article?

A private article is visible only to you and your collaborators. A public article is visible to anyone who has the link to it, anyone who visits your Authorea profile page, and it appears on the Articles page.

How is the number of private articles calculated? What happens if I add a collaborator to a private article?

Only the owner of an article (the first author) can ever be charged for making an article private. You can add as many collaborators as you like to an article you own. If you make it private, it will affect only your private article quota, not theirs.

Can I delete a private article I own (or make it public) and free up one private article slot?


I am a student and I need to write some private documents but I can't afford a Premium account.

We hear you. The last thing we want is pricing to be a barrier for using Authorea. There are a couple of options. If you invite 3 friends to Authorea, you get 1 extra private article (look for the connections sidebar in your homepage). If you then invite another 10, you get 1 more private article. So, that's 3 free private articles, which is not bad. Another option is to ask your librarian or the IT folks for an Authorea software license. If they say no, let us know at and we'll help you out.

Can I get a free trial?

Yes. Every Annual Plan comes with a 1-month free trial. You do not get charged for the first 30 days and can cancel your subscription without being charged.

Can I cancel my Premium subscription after I sign up?

Yes, absolutely, and it is really easy. You can do it from your account settings.
