does the title count in word count
But no, you should not include the title in an official word count to a publisher.
You’re going to be using approximate wordcount anyway when you write it in a query or in submission.

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.
In the Field names list, select NumWords, and then select OK.
Select in your document where you want the word count to appear.
NOTE: If the whole paper ( eg: a form ) is in a textbox, it could be rejected because the word count is too low.
- Includes the reference list
- Does not count the words in textboxes, footnotes and endnotes.
