Publish and disseminate cutting edge, open research

Make your research more widely discoverable, accessible, and citable with Authorea. Both an online writing tool and preprint hosting platform, Authorea is specifically built for the creation and rapid dissemination of modern open research. Authorea is free and can be used by anyone.

How it works:

Upload or create your research work

You can upload Word, PDF, LaTeX as well as data, code, Jupyter Notebooks, videos, and figures or start a document from scratch directly within Authorea. Take advantage of online, real-time author collaboration, LaTeX and Markdown support, and over 8,000 journal templates.

Disseminate your research rapidly

When you post your work as a preprint, a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) makes your research publicly accessible, shareable, citable, and discoverable immediately.

Get published in a refereed journal

Track the status of your paper as it goes through peer review. When published, it automatically links to the publisher version.

How Authorea supports open, reproducible research

  • Multidisciplinary: A repository for any field of research, from Anthropology to Zoology
  • Comments: Discuss your preprints with your collaborators and the scientific community
  • Interactive Figures: Not just PDFs. You can publish d3.js and graphs, data, code, Jupyter notebooks. Each Authorea document has a file repository to link data to specific tables and figures.
