# TOC entries in Small Caps

I want to have my TOC entries in Small Caps. I cant get by using \textsc{\tableofcontents} rather than \tableofcontents but this adds a blank page before TOC. Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks

This may not work, but try {\scshape\tableofcontents} instead. – Sean Allred Jul 23 '14 at 21:28

You can use tocloft and its \cftXfont family of commands:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{book}

% Packages
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\usepackage{titlesec}
\usepackage[titles]{tocloft}

\titlespacing*{\chapter}{0pt}{-50pt}{20pt}
\titleformat{\chapter}[display]{\normalfont\scshape\huge\bfseries}{\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter}{20pt}{\Huge}

\titleformat{\section}
{\normalfont\scshape\Large\bfseries}{\thesection}{15pt}{\LARGE}

\titleformat{\subsection}
{\normalfont\scshape\large\bfseries}{\thesubsection}{15pt}{\Large}

\renewcommand\cftchapfont{\scshape}
\renewcommand\cftsecfont{\scshape}

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents

\chapter{First Chapter}

\section{Introduction}

% Blind Text
\blindtext[1]

\section{Material \& Method}

% Blind Text
\blindmathpaper

\chapter{Second Chapter}

\section{Introduction}

% Blind Text
\blindtext[1]

\section{Material \& Method}

% Blind Text
\blindmathpaper

% End Document
\end{document}


An image of the resulting ToC:

Notice that tocloft was loaded using the titles option:

\usepackage[titles]{tocloft}


so the lists (ToC, LoF and LoT) titles will follow your redefinition using titlesec.

Probably one would also want \renewcommand\cfttoctitlefont{\normalfont\scshape\huge\bfseries} in this document, to match all the other chapter titles. – Dan Jul 23 '14 at 22:08
@Dan No need for that. ALl that is required is to load tocloft with the titles option (in the exmaple you won't see the difference since the defualt font doesn't provide the boldface smallcaps combination); I edited my answer adding a remark about this. – Gonzalo Medina Jul 23 '14 at 22:15
