Frequently asked questions

The main purpose of a table of contents is to serve as a roadmap of your publication. It gives the readers an organized listing of the chapters and major sections of your document. Also, it allows readers to go directly to a specific section of a digital document.

A table of contents is defined as an organized list containing the parts of a book or a document that are arranged in the order of their appearance. On the other hand, an index lists out the different topics and keywords in the book alphabetically. Also, a table of contents usually appears at the beginning of a book or paper, while the index appears at the end. A table of contents is a general outline of the document, whereas an index is a more detailed inventory of its contents.

The main advantages of having a table of contents are:
   • Fast and efficient readability
   • Manages reader expectations
   • Provides an outline
   • It can hook the reader

A table of contents usually includes:
   •titles or descriptions of first-level headings (chapters)
