Compliance criteria (KYC)
KYC verification is a mandatory procedure for identifying a person. We do this check in order to protect the platform (authors and readers) from possible fraudulent activities. This check includes all identification procedures (passport data and other data that we request at the stage of applying for a contract), as well as their analysis.
If the given data doesn’t meet the requirements, the contract would be rejected.

We truly believe that all genres should have a right to be published. However, some stories contain a type of the content which couldn’t be presented in annotation or chapters. Here is the examples scenes that could be rejected by our editorial team:
- Child abuse;
- Non-consent Sex/Rape;
- Encouragement of any kind of abuse;
- Explicit violence.
As plagiarism we define introducing the work or ideas of other people as your own with or without their consent, by including it into your content without full acknowledgement. All types of the content are covered under this definition.
As we are eager to defend the author’s rights, we take such cases very seriously, so the application would be rejected and the novel would be deleted immediately.
If you’ve noticed any case of plagiarism on AlphaNovel, please let us know via [email protected].
Example of reject due to plagiarism
Novel’s title, cover and annotation have a significant impact on the reader’s first impression. That’s why it is crucial to provide readers with high-quality content during the first touch.
The background of the cover should have high quality and 600×800 resolution. Placing the book’s title and author’s name on it is also a necessary part of getting an approval. Find more tips on making your cover an eye candy.
Annotation gives your readers the opportunity to dive into the plot and decide whether they want to continue their reading journey or not.
This reject reason could be a stumbling block not only for aspiring, but also for experienced writers. Editing influences the design of the content in the app and plays a defining role in the reader’s perception of the content. To mitigate the risks of getting the rejection make sure that your novel meets such requirements:
- All the content is written according to English grammatical and punctuation rules;
- The spaces between paragraphs are equal and make the book easy to read;
- The novel consist of sentences with correct and various structure;
- The novel contains enough synonymous constructions to make the content attractive and interesting for the reader.
Make sure that all direct speech is properly designed, the toponyms start with a capital letter and dots are there.
