Master/Doctoral Thesis : Additional chapters without counter

Postby kodjo » Tue May 23, 2017 3:33 am

Hello,

I am trying to make a modification in my thesis but I have been unsuccessful using your amazing template.
I would like the General Introduction and the General Conclusion to have the size of chapters but not preceded by "Chapter x" (or putting it differently I do not want these chapters to be counted among chapters). In addition, I would like the General Introduction and the General Conclusion to be included in the Table of Content. I have tried different approaches (including starring these chapters) without success.

Instead of having :

Chapter 1 General Introduction
Chapter 2 First chapter
Chapter 3 Second Chapter
Chapter 4 Third Chapter
Chapter 5 General Conclusion

I would like to have :

General Introduction
Chapter 1 First Chapter
Chapter 2 Second Chapter
Chapter 3 Third Chapter
General Conclusion

It would be very helpful if you could provide an example
Thank very much for your help in advance.

Best,

Kodjovi

Without knowing which template you are using, try \addchap{general introduction}
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Hi Johannes,
Thanks for the quick reply. I am using the "Masters/Doctoral Thesis" template.

Your suggestion worked perfectly! You are the best Johannes.

Thanks again,

Kodjovi
