Science and engineering research have been playing a tremendous role in shaping our world. When we talk about research, doing the experiments and writing those papers are the intangible components of cooking something in the lab.

So once we have that publishable data, the next challenging task is to put those findings on a paper and communicating it with the world.

We all know how difficult it is to produce publishable data and reproduce them, moreover it takes a great effort put those results into a publishable paper.

Writing a manuscript is a laborious effort from reading the literature to crafting your argument in a coherent way.

Founder’s journey

Harvard astrophysicist AlbertoPepe and Berkeley experimental physicist Nathan Jenkins met while working at CERN, the birthplace of the World Wide Web. Frustrated with the cumbersome and antiquated ways research was written in collaboration and disseminated (MS Word documents, email attachments, etc.) the two created a modern, web-native, Git-based document editor with a suite of integrated scientific tools. Alberto and Nathan soon left their jobs as scientists to work on Authorea full-time.
