Quick Start

Welcome to your quick start guide to Overleaf. We've put together some useful resources and links in the sections below. If you have any questions about how to get started please let us know and we'll be happy to help!

There are a number of author interviews and case studies available on our blog to act as inspiration, including two recent interviews with CERN students and collaborators:

  • Roland Sipos, a PhD student working on the CMS experiment at the LHC, who talks about his experiences writing his reports and papers on Overleaf.
  • Shri Bheesette, who works in the MARS bio-imaging group at the University of Otago in collaboration with CERN and who sees Overleaf as a platform to support long-term knowledge transfer in his group.

We also have over 1,000 LaTeX templates, examples and articles in our gallery, and have featured a selection of relevant templates below to help you get started.
