Jan 24, 2017 at 21:20 comment added gktscrk Texcount is the best in my opinion; I find the usability superb compared to some others I have tried. The detailed breakdown (of how many words) per (sub(sub))section is especially useful. +1 for mentioning it to the commenter and response.

Jul 31, 2015 at 13:26 comment added Michahell Make sure to run texcount.pl FROM the folder where your .tex files reside, otherwise you get these errors: !!! File not found: <filename> in [./] !!! Of course you don't have to copy files to your latex dir but just run it from there :)
Jan 2, 2014 at 19:56 comment added Jeff @ChrisH yes, that's fine, and I wouldn't consider that an inline citation (such as APA or MLA, as opposed to Vancouver style). my comment was specifically directed at those who use inline citations.
Jan 2, 2014 at 9:51 comment added Chris H @Jeff in my field inline references are a number, either in square brackets or superscripted, so are neither here nor there in assessing word count. Occasionally we might write out "... as Smith and Jones proposed in 1987 [1]..." but that's quite rare - the total words added by cite commands in a long review would be a few tens.
Jan 2, 2014 at 0:56 comment added Jeff @ChrisH in my experience, it excludes the bibliography only; i don't think i've seen any guidelines that exclude inline references. YMMV.
Jan 1, 2014 at 16:27 comment added Chris H yet another caveat with texcount - it doesn't understand packages such as acronym which can cause quite a lot of expansion. It also doesn't include 2nd level \inputs. So misses all my big tables and their captions, tablenotes etc.
Jan 1, 2014 at 16:25 comment added Chris H @Jeff though quite often word limits exclude the references.
Nov 28, 2012 at 1:27 comment added Jeff another caveat with texcount: it works off the raw tex file, so it will ignore any inline references placed using bibtex. this makes it worthless for most academic articles.
Jul 17, 2012 at 9:56 comment added Seamus If you use texcount you'll want to run it with options like -inc -incbib -sum to get a more accurate total.
Sep 28, 2010 at 16:33 comment added Malabarba Do these methods ignore all the words inside math environments?
Jul 29, 2010 at 11:19 comment added Willie Wong Just want to address my previous comment: the author got back to me and it will be fixed in the next version (2.3)

Jul 29, 2010 at 1:01 comment added Willie Wong texcount is pretty neat, especially the friendly online interface. One caveat: it recognizes align, equation, [ ], and $ as defining math environments (and possibly more). But it somehow misses align*.
