LaTeX is a high quality typesetting system that that facilitates the production of well-formatted document. It has become highly popular in academic settings as an alternative to common typewriting systems (e.g., Word). This Methods Bites Tutorial by our team member Cosima Meyer and Dennis Hammerschmidt walks you through your first steps in LaTeX (using Overleaf) and provides you with a hands-on guide for writing scientific papers using an easily accessible template. It is based on the workshop Introduction to LaTeX and Overleaf at the MZES Social Science Data Lab in November 2019. The slides can be accessed on our GitHub.
