    You can use package blindtext for creating dummy pages. Then your resulting ToC shows the needed page numbers ... BTW: Welcome to TeX.SE!

    Or you could just for this occasion add a \setcounter{page}{#reqiredpageno} before the section commands. Jul 10, 2013 at 11:57
  • Shouldn't the LoF be "ii"? Doesn't the ToC should be counted, but not numbered, as well?

Prepare two files.

First file faketoc.tex

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\setcounter{secnumdepth}{5}
\setcounter{tocdepth}{5}
\usepackage{tocloft}

%\includeonly{}
\begin{document}


\tableofcontents

\include{\jobname-include}

\end{document}

Second file faketoc-include.tex

\pagenumbering{roman}

\part{List of Figures} %(required page number "i")
\clearpage
\part{List of Tables}  %(required page number "ii")
\clearpage
\part{Abbreviations}   %(required page number "iii")
\clearpage
\part{Declaration}     %(required page number "iv")
\clearpage

\pagenumbering{arabic}

%\setcounter{page}{1} %redundant
\section{Introduction}
\subsection{Research problem}   %(required page number "1")
\clearpage\setcounter{page}{3}
\subsection{Research aims}      %(required page number "3")
\clearpage\setcounter{page}{5}
\subsection{Research questions} %(required page number "5")
\clearpage\setcounter{page}{8}
\subsection{Organisation of the dissertation} %(required page number "8")

\clearpage\setcounter{page}{10}
\section{Literature Review} %(required page number "10")

\subsection{Focal theories} %(required page number "10")

\clearpage\setcounter{page}{11}
\subsubsection{The five competitive forces} %(required page number "11")

\paragraph{Definition and concept} %(required page number "11")
\clearpage\setcounter{page}{25}
\paragraph{Critical review} %(required page number "25")
\clearpage\setcounter{page}{28}
\paragraph{Linkage to competitive advantage} %(required page number "28")

Procedure

  1. Compile faketoc.tex

  2. Remove the % before \includeonly{}

  3. Compile again faketoc.tex

The result will be a PDF containing only the table of contents
