Cambridge University Press partners with Overleaf

Today, Cambridge University Press announce a new partnership with Overleaf, an online tool for authors to write, collaborate and submit scholarly articles to participating journals.

Through this new partnership, authors for three Cambridge journals - Political Science Research & MethodsBritish Journal of Political Science and Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia - are able to write and collaborate into pre-formatted LaTeX templates, and directly submit manuscripts  to the journals involved. This will simplify the submission process for authors, guide authors if they stray from formatting guidelines, and offer an easier and faster way to collaborate and write articles.

“We are extremely proud to be working with Cambridge University Press who are dedicated to delivering the latest technology innovations to their authors. Furthermore, it’s exciting to provide researchers a simple option for writing and submitting manuscripts to the selected Cambridge journals, simplifying the publication process.

Together we share a like-minded goal - to encourage and improve academic collaboration. It’s great to work with such a prestigious global team.”

- John Hammersley, Co-founder and CEO of Overleaf  


Collaborative features will enable authors to share the article between co-authors, and to edit and comment upon each other’s work. Sophisticated version control means authors do not have to save or email multiple versions of articles – and a real-time preview of the typeset article means they can see their work developing as it would be published in the journal.

"Through this exciting partnership with Overleaf, we are able to offer our authors an innovative tool that can simplify the writing process, support them with writing in LaTeX, further aid collaboration and streamline submission.

The partnership supports our aim to serve the changing needs of our authors with the most effective solutions, and to fulfill our core purpose of advancing learning, knowledge and research worldwide."

Emily MarchantAuthor Services Manager at Cambridge University Press

The partnership will also enable the capturing of structured manuscript metadata, correctly compiled LaTeX files and PDFs directly into Cambridge submission systems - all via a one-click submission link.
