...spent book scouting

In 60 seconds, our AI-based algorithms analyse the content of a book, compare it with your publishing profile and scan the market results of similar books that have been published, based on data by Nielsen, Ingram, eLibri and Biblioteka Analiz. So, we save your editors time by preselecting the most promising pieces to focus on.

Our background

Since 2016, Literacka Technology has been a technological partner of book publishers, booksellers, librarians and readers throughout Poland, Europe and the USA. Additionally, our R&D team cooperates with many research units and universities in Poland.

We coordinate and implement research and development for the largest Polish online bookstores and e-book libraries. We also cooperate with the Polish Book Institute and Norwegian Literature Abroad (NORLA) in a joint project called ‘Artificial Intelligence in the Service of Books’, which makes it easier for Polish and Norwegian publishers to seek publication opportunities in other countries.

We use artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to estimate the market potential of a book, offer product recommendations, and automate marketing and sales processes in the bookstore industry. We are a leader in the analysis of long texts via AI algorithms. Our algorithms achieve an efficiency of 82–96%. Additionally, the recognition of literary categories by our AI algorithms is 2% more accurate than that of humans.

Since March 2020, we have co-organised the nationwide Book Marketing conference in Poland and the Book Targ trade fair (part of the Book Targ virtual book fair – the most important online event in the book industry).

Frequently asked questions

Can BookScout.ai analyze the manuscripts sent to me by authors and recommend the most promising ones?

Yes. We generate a unique online form especially for you, through which authors can submit manuscripts to you. All you need to do is publish a link to this form on your website, and all submissions can then be directed to this channel. In this way, the manuscripts are sent to you and to our servers, where they are analyzed. Through our application, you have free access to all files and information provided to you by the authors. We add to each application information about how much it matches your publishing criteria, and you can conveniently filter, sort, view, and categorize the manuscripts. We also send you an email notification as soon as we identify a particularly promising manuscript.

Can I analyze the content of manuscripts or books from my archives?

Yes. All you have to do is provide us with the files you want us to analyse. Our system processes files in the following formats: TXT, DOC, DOCX, EPUB, and, if necessary, PDF.

How is the content that I submit to BookScout.ai analyzed?

Files containing the content of manuscripts or already published books are downloaded via a private cloud protected by a password. Additionally, each file is secured with a password and a watermark for BookScout.ai. The files are stored on a secured server, to which only three people have access: the administrator and two data science programmers. The server works in the internal network and is accessible only through the edge server.
