Authorea - demo

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Clark Hall, 701
Central Campus

Authorea: write and manage data-driven, interactive scientific articles in a collaborative environment. 

Speaker/representative: Alberto Pepe

Most tools that scientists use for the preparation of scholarly manuscripts, such as Microsoft Word and LaTeX, function offline and do not account for the born-digital nature of research objects. Also, most authoring tools in use today are not designed for collaboration, and, as scientific collaborations grow in size, research transparency and the attribution of scholarly credit are at stake. In this talk, I will present an innovative way to collaboratively author on the web data-driven articles --- articles that natively offer readers a dynamic, interactive experience with an article’s fulltext, images, data, and code. I will show how the Authorea platform (, which has been depicted as a hybrid between Google Docs and Github for scientific papers - allows scientists to collaboratively write rich data-driven manuscripts on the web.
