5 ways Typeset can help you write your research 3X faster

Writing my first research paper still ranks high in the list of “stressful” times of my undergraduate days. For one, there was this peer pressure to prove myself. And that “huge” expectation from my department head who was going out of his way to help me out. Not the least, all the different things I have to manage to write and “submit” that paper minutes before the deadline. Phew!

12 years later, I am part of a team whose goal is to transform the writing experience of researchers and academics. To help them save time and be more effective with their research communication.

Now, many of us have been there and done that with MS Word or LaTeX — the dual alternatives to anyone who has to start typing their research. Then, why a writing platform for research? Or more specifically, how we at Typeset, help students and researchers save more than 60% of time usually spent in writing and formatting their research?

Writing Guide

So you decided to write a paper for a journal, let’s say IEEE Internet Computing. Now where do you start? What sections need to be written? And more importantly, what are the specified guidelines for each of the sections?

You can either visit IEEE website and go through a 100 pages guide to understand the guidelines. Or you can start with the IEEE Internet Computing template on Typeset.
