A: You will have as many sections on your paper as the keywords.
B: You will have as many sections on your paper as the number of the keywords.
I believe the second one is grammatically correct. But isn't the first one used at all?
The second is correct. A. would be acceptable without 'the'. "... as many sections as keywords."
