3.8  List of Tables

required if figures used

When tables are used, a List of Tables should be placed on a separate page immediately following the Abstract, Acknowledgements, or Dedication page … whichever is the immediately preceding part. Center and position the heading, LIST OF TABLES at the top of the page text area followed by two lines of space. Table numbers should be presented in Arabic numerals, e.g., Table 1, Table 2, etc. using title case. If the title is longer than one line, each entry should be single spaced, with double spacing between titles. The complete table title must be shown.

Each table entry shown should have a page number with leader dots from last word in the table title to the corresponding page number, which should be flush with the right margin. Tables must be listed here as sequentially numbered tables using Arabic numbers. Continuing pages are headed, LIST OF TABLES (continued), if the List of Tables is longer than one page.

Page Numbering: This page number (in lower case roman numbers) is the next number in the sequence following the page number of the immediately preceding part which would either be the Abstract, Acknowledgements, or Dedication part.

  • The LIST OF TABLES should be the first part of the TABLE OF CONTENTS.
  • The List of Tables should precede any List of Figures.
