If users are familiar with LaTeX/TeX then definitely try
http://OverLeaf.com service. For decent size of the documents it is
free and if you need some extra project security then service has almost
everything you need in paid version. I have very positive experience
with it so really recommend it to try. I am not sure if they have an
open source version you may install in your premises but you may ask for it.
