contents of a thesis paper
To save yourself some time in making your Table of Contents, be sure that you use font styles.
The Table of Contents (TOC) is an organized listing of the chapters and major sections of your document. Readers will immediately be able to see how your manuscript is organized and then skip down to sections that are most relevant to them. A clear, concise, and well formatted TOC is the first indicator of a good research paper.
Be very careful when making your final draft that all of the page numbers given in the Contents are correct.
Notice that everything leading up to the Introduction does not (necessarily) have to be numbered here (if you do, the numbering would be in Roman numerals).
