Overleaf (recently merged with ShareLaTex) provides a collaborative interactive platform for writing, editing, and publishing articles. Overleaf also offers a variety of templates to create assignments, syllabi, reports, presentations, and newsletters.

In this workshop you will learn about Overleaf and LaTeX, a markup language, which enables you to separate your context from formatting (e.g., font, size, margins), thus allowing you to concentrate solely on your ideas. Particularly, using LaTeX is beneficial if your writing incorporates formulae, equations, glosses or your journal requires a specific article format and bibliographic style.
