The best format for uploading to StudySoup is PDF. PDF documents allow the formatting of your document to remain how you arranged it, no matter what device or program they are viewed on. This is especially important if you use formulas, symbols, or accented characters in your materials.
If you type your notes in Microsoft Word or on Google Docs, you can save them as a PDF file to upload - just go to "File", then "Save as" or "Download as" and select PDF as the file format.
If you hand-write your notes, try downloading a scanner app for your phone. There are a lot of great options, and they'll allow you to scan all the pages of your handwritten notes into one PDF. If you don't want to use a scanner app, then take pictures of your notes and paste the pictures into a Word/Google Doc, then save that as a PDF. It will make the file size much smaller and ensure that your pictures don't accidentally upload upside-down or sideways when they upload to StudySoup. Saving your handwritten notes as PDF will allow them to process much more quickly on StudySoup than they will as images.
While we strongly recommend PDF format, these are all the file types accepted by StudySoup: .pdf, .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .tiff, .tif, .doc, .docx
