No, the reference list (or bibliography) at the end of your assignment should not be included as part of the word count.

  1. Is the references mentioned in the main body of your work included with regards to Harvard referencing? For example, "A flower is a geometric pattern" (David and Goliath, 1990). Does this mean the text (David and Goliath, 1990) is not included in the word count?

  2. Although in-text citations are usually included in your word count, your reference list or bibliography are not included in that word count.
