Markdown is a fantastic and minimalist tool for authoring scientific documents. This repository is a collection of tools, resources, and tutorials to simplfy your workflow. If you spend a little time going through the tutorials you'll be able to stop using Microsoft Word entirely and write clean, lightweight markdown files that can easily be version controlled by git. Collaboration with your coauthors would also become way more powerful and simpler.
This repo is now a collaborative effort. Please contribute and add yourself to our list. - Karthik Ram
On June 8th, Martin Fenner and Stian Haklev organized a one day workshop at the Public Library of Science HQ in San Francisco.
