PDF Word Counter

This tool converts a PDF file to text and provides a word count. A word is defined as a string of characters delimited by white space (spaces, tabs, and newlines).

AER: Insights Authors: Your word count PDF should include only the main body of your manuscript (including any equations) plus footnotes and endnotes.  This PDF should exclude the title, author names, abstract, acknowledgement footnote, reference list, and exhibits.  Otherwise, it should be identical to the submitted manuscript.
