Research Proposals - Table of Contents

The Table of Contents (ToC)

Whether to include a ToC depends on (a) the direction in the guidelines, and (b) the complexity and length of the proposal.

Very brief proposals with few sections ordinarily do not need a table of contents; the guiding consideration in this is the reader's convenience.

Long and detailed proposals may require, in addition to a table of contents, a list of illustrations (or figures) and a list of tables.

If all of these are included, they should follow the order mentioned, and each should be numbered with lower-case Roman numerals. If they are brief, more than one can be put on a single page.
