Please refer to your programme and module handbooks for guidance on word counts as requirements may differ slightly.
The word count is a communication about the level of detail required. It would be possible to write a short statement of 80 words, or a thesis of 80 000 words, on the same topic. The word count lets you know information such as how much detail to give, how many main points and sub points to choose, and how detailed the examples should be.
Do my in-text citations and reference lists get included in the Word Count for my assignment?
Often (but not always) markers will count everything in the body of your assignment (including quotes and in-text citations), but will not include the reference list in their calculations. However, this might not be the case for your course.
Yes, the word limit will include all words within a specified text. Usually, journals have a limit of 200 words for the abstract. This includes all the words in the abstract. However, most journals discourage including references in the abstract. Please ensure that you follow journal guidelines strictly. Most journals have limited space for each manuscript and not adhering to the journal specifications can negatively impact the decision on your manuscript.

The word count for a page will vary depending on word length, font size and type, margin size, and spacing elements (single/double space, blank lines, subheadings, graphics).
