Authorea is the leading collaborative platform to read, write, and publish research.



We founded Authorea in late 2012 with the mission of accelerating scientific discovery. We were frustrated that other writing tools didn't fully understand the needs of researchers -- especially researchers in a web-first world -- and we wondered why the internet age hadn't yet delivered a modern toolset for scientific collaboration. Authorea is the document editor we always wanted.
