Similarly, other file types (such as PDFs) may generate a higher word count in Turnitin as it is only possible to count ALL words within a PDF rather than being able to exclude certain elements such as footnotes and endnotes. Turnitin uses a word counting algorithm very similar to that of Microsoft Word.
