For over a year and a half we ran a CERN-wide trial of collaborative authoring platforms, understanding how the CERN community authors and co-authors, gathering the user needs and requirements and evaluating the available options. As a result, the Overleaf and ShareLaTeX cloud platforms are now fully available to the CERN Community. First, we will explain our user-centered approach step-by-step, how it led us to a decision and why it was important to follow this approach. Then, we will highlight how collaborative scientific authoring at CERN will benefit from the chosen cloud platforms.
