LaTeX and Overleaf


LaTeX is a high quality typesetting system that that facilitates the production of well-formatted document. It has become highly popular in academic settings as an alternative to common typewriting systems (e.g., Word). In this blog post, Cosima Meyer and I discuss the first steps in LaTeX (using Overleaf) and provide a hands-on guide for writing (scientific) papers using an easily accessible template. The blog post is based on the workshop Introduction to LaTeX and Overleaf at the MZES Social Science Data Lab.
