Typeset simplifies the scientific writing process. It is a collaboration tool for researchers, authors, and editors. It helps writers avoid the frustrations of manual formatting by auto-formatting manuscripts within seconds, saving authors plenty of time and money with no additional effort. Typeset also generates journal-compliant documents automatically by adhering to the journal guidelines, allowing authors to avoid formatting hardships effortlessly.

Because Typeset is a web-authoring platform that allows authors to write and submit manuscripts directly to journals, it is a great alternative to LaTeX, Google Docs, or MS Word. The platform provides submission templates that adhere to the same LaTeX submission guidelines as the publishers. Authors can write directly on the tool or import their documents, then edit and submit manuscripts straight to the desired journal within a few seconds.

Typeset provides a collection of astronomy journal templates:

Its auto conversion features (free conversions to PDF, XML, EPUB, and HTML) save both time and money as well.

Exploring the benefits of Typeset on a broader spectrum

As the world’s largest integrated research writing platform, Typeset offers multiple benefits. Typeset does all the heavy lifting, including importing your manuscript, formatting, editing, and referencing with a click-click process and lets authors focus on the research content.

Typeset has a formatting gallery of over 40,000+ journal templates and is 100% compliant with journal guidelines. In addition, it has an inbuilt intuitive editor and grammar tool. It offers comprehensive solutions to researchers allowing them to quickly turn their manuscripts into publication-ready research articles.

There are many software programs available on the market when it comes to research writing platforms. But Typeset is the only software that provides an “all-in-one” platform to transform the research writing process automatically.

A side-by-side comparison of Typeset and Overleaf further outlines the benefits and features of Typeset:

Features Typeset Overleaf
Description Largest scientific writing platform in the world Most seamless LaTeX editor
Mode of Writing Write or import any file format and typeset within seconds Only write in LaTeX
Academic Journal Templates 40,000+ 400
Formatting Auto-formatting technology helps create a submission-ready paper that is 100% compliant with the journal guidelines Comes with sample text pre-formatted as per the journal’s guidelines
Reformatting Comes with a “one-paper-fits-all” solution: write once and reformat for multiple journals with a click Requires reformatting articles each time before submitting them to other journals
Citation Offers auto-ordering of citations and easily cites all images, tables, figures via a simplistic editor Requires manual citation via LaTeX
Grammar and spell-check Provides a built-in grammar and spell-checking system Plugin is required


These are a few of the tenets that emphasize the need for an automated research writing tool for early-researchers and scholars. A detailed report of this comparison study can be found on this blog.

Nevertheless, both Typeset and Overleaf have proven efficient in their own way. And undoubtedly, Overleaf is the best LaTeX editor, though it still requires some knowledge of LaTex. On the other hand, Typeset provides an automated writing platform where authors can skip LaTeX altogether and directly write or import the document as a whole for auto-formatting. With less time spent learning LaTeX, authors can concentrate on their writing, which is why Typeset is being used by over 1M+ researchers worldwide.
