How Many Word You Need

with one comment

Welcome to the era of quantifiable, measurable and strict industrial standard. Well, for many reason I agree with this requirement, although deep down, I feel that its hard (crying). But this is simple guidance for word counting industry.

  • Single Page A4, 1.5 spacing, 12 font: 375-450 word
  • Blog posting: 200-250 word (half of page of A4)
  • Newspaper Opinion: 700-1000 word (2 page of A4)
  • Course Assignment: 2000-2500 word (5-7 page of A4)
  • IEEE Paper: 4500 word (4-6 pages, 10 font, 1 spacing)
  • MSc Engineering Thesis: 15,000-20,000 word (40-50 page of A4) *exclude diagram, tabulated data
  • MSc Social Thesis: 25,000-30,000 word (50-60 page of A4)
  • PhD Engineering Thesis: 40,000 word (100-200 page of A4)
  • Novel Paperback: 50,000 word (250 word per page, 200 word)
  • PhD Social Thesis: 80,000-100,000 word *some strict on maximum word

For me, the interesting thing is that an idea is can be written in 200 word, for example you wake up in the morning and start to realize there are something wrong with Stephen Hawking idea, then you can write it in 200 word. After taking a bath, you start to realize that it should be written in better description so you add become 1000 word, publish it in the newspaper. Then you make it a formal university assignment, so it become 2000 word, double it again and you have 4000 word IEEE paper. So in 3-4 year of Phd, some might submit 3 paper. Or it can be 7-8 paper
