Why is Authorea better than MS Word or Google Docs for my work?

The Authorea Team

Authorea is an online collaborative editor that helps you create beautiful documents and research papers with coauthors. Here are a few features that you won’t find in a .docx or GDoc:

Add equations with ease: Authorea’s rich equation editor lets you write complex formulas directly in your Authorea document.

Interactive figures, data and files included: Embed interactive, dynamic, data-driven figures directly into your articles, along with iPython notebooks and other data sources.

Easy citations and bibliography: Search papers on PubMed and CrossRef by author, title, keyword or DOI. Authorea will automatically create the citation and bibliography for you.

Superior Collaboration: You can start writing from scratch in Authorea or upload an existing document and share it with collaborators. You can all work on it at the same time and version control will prevent you from overwriting each other’s work. And no more emailing different versions of documents around.

Comment and discuss: The comment feature is useful to discuss edits in line privately with your coauthors as well as to collect public feedback and reviews on your work. This helps improve your research, both before and after publication.

LaTeX made easy and shareable: Authorea compiles LaTeX to HTML so that every article you write becomes a webpage - one you can privately share with your colleagues to receive comments and feedback.

Publish your work, beautifully: Submitting your Authorea article to a journal or conference? Choose from hundreds of journal templates and format it with one click.

Once you start working in Authorea, you’ll see these advantages and more.
