At the end of my dissertation, I have a plan for future work. My question is How can I make the title "Future work" appear as a chapter heading without the word "Chapter" and also number as well as I want it to appear in the list of contents. Can you suggest what should I do?

    You could start your 'Future work' with a little present for the present time (pun intended ;-)) by providing a MWE – user31729 Dec 31 '18 at 8:56

It is hard to answer that question, since you don't tell us which class you are using. Here's a possibility, which assumes that you are using the book class:

\chapter{Normal chapter}
\chapter*{Future work}\phantomsection\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Future work}

    but this is unnumbered. – Johannes_B Dec 31 '18 at 10:36

    Since the OP wrote “without the word "Chapter" and also number”, I thought that they meant unnumbered too. – José Carlos Santos Dec 31 '18 at 10:40

    @JoséCarlosSantos: The original question is tagged with titlesec, so it is very likely that a titlesec related answer is requested -- the question is unclear, though. – user31729 Dec 31 '18 at 12:13
  • i saw some of your recent edits. There is no real point in fixing typos (especially single typos) years later. I suggest to let those questions rest in peace. – Johannes_B Jan 1 at 10:40
  • @Johannes_B In general, I agree, but I suppose that it is still important to correct old typos when they are located in the titles of the posts, because if you are doing a search, you might miss a post due to a misspelled word. – José Carlos Santos Jan 1 at 10:47
