Hello, welcome to the online curriculum for the Authorea hands-on session at ResBaz! This curriculum is intended to walk you through the exercises and challenges that we will cover during the Authorea workshop. You can access it at http://authorea.com/18566/.
First things, first. We will work in groups of 4-5 people. Why? Because most article collaborations in science have become less and less single authored, and more collaborative. And, 4-5 author collaborations seem to be a quickly growing trend in recent years.
The purpose of this session is for your group to write a research paper together. So, each group should nominate a person to create the new article. If you are that person, go ahead and create an article! Note: If your group is for the most part social scientists or scholars for the humanities, make sure you create an article in Markdown. (You have to click on Advanced Settings).
The person who created the article is now the admin of the paper. They can (and should!) add coauthors to the paper (all the people in the group), so that you can all work on it together. Co-authors will be added by their email and they will receive an activation link to complete account registration.
Now that you’re all part of an article collaboration, go to it and play around! Let’s spend a few minutes familiarizing ourselves with the platform. Can we edit together? Can we add new text?
