Minneapolis, MN – Open Therapeutics™ announces the planned integration of Overleaf™ into its novel scientific collaboration platform, Therapoid™.


Overleaf is a unique collaborative writing manuscript development platform that supports scientists during their authorship. Its services to researchers enable them to author new research results and publish faster. Overleaf is an online LaTeX and Rich Text collaborative writing and publishing tool that makes the whole process of writing, editing and publishing scientific documents much quicker and easier.


According to John Hammersley, CEO, Overleaf, “Overleaf is always looking to help make global collaboration and scientific authorship easier, and when Jason reached out we were happy to help ensure the Therapoid™ user community can use the Overleaf platform to collaborate upon their research papers. We’re looking forward to hearing from authors who use Overleaf for their manuscripts!”


Jason E. Barkeloo, Founder and Executive Chairman of Open Therapeutics, “Overleaf is an important tool for the scientific community. We are grateful to Overleaf for enabling our open science collaboration platform users to develop their manuscripts within the Overleaf platform.”


Open Therapeutics hosts intellectual properties (IP) from institutions around the world. This IP is freely provided to researchers, particularly the underserved, and enables them to further the research at no cost.  The Therapoid platform also freely hosts grants, free lab equipment, manuscript development, and preprint server within its collaborative scientific ecosystem.

We Believe

Open Therapeutics crowdsources orphan and dormant therapeutic intellectual properties (IP) to scientists around the world. The goal is advancing research that ordinarily has not generated a public value or been recognized. This approach particularly helps underserved scientists to collaborate with their more financially capable colleagues.

How open science helps researchers succeed:

Open access, open data, open source, and other open scholarship practices are growing in popularity and necessity. However, widespread adoption of these practices has not yet been achieved. One reason is that researchers are uncertain about how sharing their work will affect their careers.

The review of the literature demonstrates that open science is associated with increases in citations, media attention, potential collaborators, job opportunities, and funding opportunities. These findings are evidence that open science practices bring significant benefits to researchers relative to more traditional closed practices.
