I'm using APA 6th referencing, and I'm wondering if I'm using tables in my assignment (in this case it's a report) and the table is a table copied (and referenced) straight from a book, do the words in it count towards my word count?

What subject are you doing or university are you attending? Educational Debate is for debating and discussing current issues in education. If you let me know then I can move the thread to the best forum.

But the answer to such question is that it will vary by university (and even department within a university).

If tables are included in your word count then I expect a copied, referenced table would, just as a direct quotation would usually count. If they don't then they won't. But this is only a guess. You need proper clarification from your department.

I wouldn't have thought so, but you'd be better asking your department.

Thank you, and sorry about the wrong forum, wasn't sure where was best to put it.

My tutor did get back to me, and said they didn't count, so you can lock/delete this if you wish.
