# Remove TOC and Bibliography Titles Chapter Numbers

I am using the report document class and I ran into a bit of a weird quirk. Both the TOC and Bibliography have a chapter number which is quite surprising. See the following MWE

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[a4paper, margin=0.8in]{geometry}
\usepackage[style=nature]{biblatex}

\DeclareUnicodeCharacter{2212}{-}

\usepackage{siunitx}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{array}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{makecell}

% figures
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{subcaption}
\usepackage{float}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage[protrusion=true]{microtype}
\usepackage[capitalise,noabbrev]{cleveref}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{authblk}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\titleformat{\chapter}{}{}{0em}{\bf\LARGE\thechapter.~}
\usepackage[nottoc,numbib]{tocbibind}

\date{}

\begin{document}

\input{title}

\tableofcontents
\clearpage

%Introduction
\chapter{Introduction}
\input{Intro}
\clearpage

%
\chapter{Chap1}
\clearpage

\end{document}



It looks like

Would be grateful for any advice on how to remove those numbers as it looks quite weird. Thanks!

I believe the problem is caused by the "Contents" and "Bibliography" headers are typeset using the same \chapter method that you redefined to include the chapter number. Your MWE doesn't output the bibliography portion, but using the tocloft package we can fix at least the TOC portion.

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\titleformat{\chapter}{}{}{0em}{\bf\LARGE\thechapter.~}
\usepackage{tocloft} %<--
\renewcommand{\cfttoctitlefont}{\bf\LARGE} %<--
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\chapter{Introduction}
\chapter{Chap1}
\end{document}


• Hey! This worked great for the TOC. Also you are right regarding the modification. That is quite interesting. Nov 16 '21 at 1:29
