Authorea is a platform that allows you to edit in LaTeX, richtext, or markdown. Therefore, you can upload an existing word document (i.e. from Google Docs or Microsoft Word) or an LaTeX file to Authorea, edit it, and download in various formats. There are also thousands of starter templates, including templates for research documents, LaTex documents, journal articles, or even interactive documents.
Basic plans (up to 3 private documents) and student/educator plans (up to 10 private documents) are available in addition to premium plans, which provide unlimited documents, unlimited collaborators, and more data storage.
