Why am I being suggested to go for a higher word count category?

If you have been suggested by your Handle to opt for a higher word count category than you intended, it can be due to one or more of the following reasons:

  • The data analysis or testing method you requested for is complex.
  • The number of variables present in your study is likely to be high (more than 10).
  • The number of references or studies needed to be reviewed is high.
  • Multiple hypotheses (more than 2) are being tested.
  • The sample size is huge (more than 150).
  • In addition to the central aim, your paper consists of secondary objectives too.
  • The number of headings or sub-headings requested by you cannot be covered in a lesser word count.
