The University of Glasgow is providing Overleaf Professional accounts for all students and staff who would like to use a collaborative, online LaTeX authoring tool for their projects.

Overleaf Professional accounts provide real-time track changes, unlimited collaborators, and full document history.

Overleaf is designed to make the process of writing, editing and producing your research papers and project reports much quicker for both you and your collaborators.


If you already have a personal account with a different login, you can link that account to your Glasgow single sign on in order to benefit from your free Overleaf Professional account.
