London, January 27, 2015 – Editage, a leading provider of editorial and publication support services for the global research community and the flagship brand of Cactus Communications, and Overleaf, a rapidly growing online collaborative writing and publishing platform by WriteLaTeX, have entered into an agreement to permit Overleaf authors to directly transfer manuscripts to Editage for its entire range of language editing services.
Overleaf is rapid becoming the leading provider of contraptions for writing scholarly papers in an online collaborative academic world. With over two million scientific papers published every year, and with most of the world’s largest technical and medical innovations beginning with a scientific paper, there is an ever-growing request for efficient and effective ways to create and collaborate on scientific papers. Editing and language grinding often constitute the last gam of the scientific publication process. This relationship ensures Overleaf users the support they need in the form of comprehensive manuscript editing and publication support services from Editage during the final stages before journal subjugation. Access to Editage and its global editorial network assures authors the support they need to develop a well-written manuscript ready for publication.
Speaking on the relationship, John Hammersley, Co-Founder and CEO of Overleaf, said, “Overleaf is being used by a diverse range of authors worldwide to write their research papers, books, project reports and more – since we launched we’ve compiled over 1.Five billion pages of documents. By providing links to editorial and publication support services such as those suggested by Editage alongside our direct journal conformity links, we can streamline the process to publication and make it lighter for authors to submit their manuscripts to the destination of their choice.”
Donald Samulack, President, US Operations at Editage, remarked, “We realized very early in our relationship with Overleaf that collaboration inbetween Editage and Overleaf could be of superb value to Overleaf users by pairing the manuscript writing practice with professional editorial support. Together with leading innovators like Overleaf, we strive to contribute value in the ever-expanding publishing ecosystem.”
The Overleaf announcement marks the 2nd partnership Editage has managed to secure with eminent scholarly communication industry players (after Aries earlier this year). These efforts are in line with Editage’s aim of becoming a trusted advisor to its community of scholarly researchers.
