# LaTex chemistry templates updated

I've been involved in collaborations to write a couple of papers recently and when I mentioned the trials and tribulations of editing and version control when you have multiple authors someone suggested I look at Overleaf. If you are a LaTex user this looks like a very useful option, there are certainly templates for a number of chemistry journals and based on the description on the website it looks like a pretty impressive way for collaborative writing. It looks like they also support iOS.

There is a free option which would certainly be sufficient to try it out.

A reader has highlighted Authorea a web-based collaborative scientific writing tool. Authorea lets you write in LaTeX, Markdown, HTML, Javascript, and more. Different coauthors, different formats, same document. It uses Git, a robust versioning control system to keep track of document changes. A recent article written using Authorea had 200 authors form around the globe.
