New writing tool: Authorea

The UCLA Library has licensed access to Authorea, an online collaborative research writing tool, for UCLA faculty and researchers. Authorea allows authors to write and edit privately or with others, insert and format citations, add and review comments, include data and figures, and export and publish documents in 100+ journal formats. The UCLA license allows users to create unlimited private articles. Learn more about Authorea at

UCLA users can sign up at Authorea and associate their accounts (under User Settings) with UCLA.

The library is licensing Authorea for one year and will assess usage and feedback at the end of the first year in September 2017. If you have any feedback about Authorea, please contact Tony Aponte at the Science and Engineering Library.
