When calculating the number of words in your paper, you do not need to include any sections of your manuscript that will not be edited, such as:
- Reviewers’ comments
- Numeric data in tables
- Any sections that you specifically wish to exclude
- The reference (bibliography) section if you order English editing, Spanish translation, or Portuguese translation
Use the Word Count tool in Microsoft Word to calculate the number of words in your files. Please note that you can include supplementary materials and cover letters with your manuscript but we only accept one paper per order. Multiple manuscripts will need to be submitted separately.
Our support staff would be happy to confirm your word count and price if you e-mail us your files.
