Can AJE use Overleaf for LaTeX files?


Due to Overleaf's current terms of service, AJE does not support Overleaf for LaTeX files at this time. Most of our editors use other software for LaTeX files. TeXworks is free and open-source application software that many researchers use to create and edit their .tex files.

If you have created your LaTeX file in Overleaf, you can export your entire project using these directions on the Overleaf help center.

If you decide to upload your .tex file for editing through your AJE account, please also upload a PDF copy of the file as well as a compressed (.zip or .rar) file with all of the dependencies needed to compile your LaTeX file (e.g., .bib, .csl, .sty, .jpg, .tif) as reference files.

Please note: Changes will not be tracked within the edited LaTeX files themselves. If possible, we will generate a PDF of the file showing the changes that have been made to your document, including the code. Please note that producing a PDF showing the changes without the code is beyond the scope of our service.

However, if you would like to generate a compare file that shows the changes in a PDF format that resembles the compiled LaTeX file, we recommend the Perl script latexdiff script for this purpose. For more information on how to use latexdiff to generate a compare PDF, please refer to the following article on AJE Scholar: "How Can I Track Changes in My Edited TeX File?"

Otherwise, if you prefer to see the changes tracked directly in the edited file, you will need to send the text in a different format such as a .doc, .docx, or .rtf file. In this case, we also ask that you include a PDF of your manuscript that can be used as a reference.
