Overleaf now available to Journal and Annals of Glaciology authors
Dear Cryolist members
We’re writing to let you know that the two journals of the International Glaciological Society, Journal of Glaciology and Annals of Glaciology, are beginning a partnership with authoring tool Overleaf. If you’re thinking of submitting to
either of the journals, this tool is now a freely available option for writing your article.
Overleaf is a free, online writing tool which offers the following benefits:
·Intuitive LaTeX formatting, whether you’re familiar with LaTeX or not. This can be particularly helpful if you and your co-authors have varying levels of understanding of LaTeX.
·Real-time online collaboration with co-authors.
·Version control features to help you keep track of multiple iterations of your manuscript.
·Pre-formatted templates and direct submission to both journals.
·save versions that can be shared with and edited by co-authors
·submit the final article directly into the ScholarOne system.
The Overleaf template is based upon LaTeX but contains a rich text mode; you do not have to be a LaTeX expert in order to use it. It could be particularly useful if you are collaborating withother authors. At
the end of the Overleaf process a clean PDF is transmitted to ScholarOne as the main manuscript with the LaTeX source files supplied in a zip file for the production team if the article is accepted.
