Does the table of contents, headings, formulas, in-text citations, tables, figure headings or graph count towards the word count? It’s a chemistry EE if that makes a difference

@Sky do you know if putting something in brackets counts towards word count? Like if I go "the building (image 1)", does image 1 count towards the word count? Thank you if you know the answer!

Spoke to my coordinator and she said that the following are not on part of the word count:
Contents page, maps, charts, diagrams, annotated illustrations, tables, equations, formulas, calculations, citations/references (whether parenthetical, numbered, footnotes) & the bibliography
