I´m beginning my project with the chapter "thesis statement" in front of the table of contents and the list of abbreviations (also a chapter). I know that you can add custom entries to the toc via \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\Roman{chapter}.~~~Table of Contents}. So my table of contents looks like this:

I thesis statement
II Table of Contents
III List of Abbreviations
1 Introduction

What bothers me though is that the table of contents itself is not numbered. Is there a way to add the toc as a chapter?

  • Welcome to TeX SX! It can be done with package tocbibind . But why have the toc self-mentioning? When you're reading the table of contents, do you fear not to find it? – Bernard Nov 28 '19 at 21:15
  • Thank you for the welcome! Maybe I need to clarify my question: I was not looking for a way to add the toc as an entry in it. Instead I wanted to nummerate the toc itself like a chapter. I don´t fear not to find the toc when reading in it, but I think it would not look complete without it. – Staanemer Nov 28 '19 at 22:10
  • In all the books I have read I have never seen a numbered ToC. – Peter Wilson Nov 29 '19 at 17:52

I found a solution: For KOMA-Script based documents you can nummerate the toc like a chapter with \setuptoc{toc}{numbered} before \begin{document}.
