[Tex/LaTex] Renaming the bibliography page using BibTeX


Is there a way to rename (or do away with the name of) the bibliography page that is output using BibTeX? If so, is the name dependent on the bibliographystyle, or is it something inherent within the BibTeX functionality?

Best Answer

This does not depend on BibTeX, but on the document class. The article class uses the \refname macro (which is defined as References) when typesetting the bibliography heading; the book and report class use \bibname (which is defined as Bibliography). So try to add e.g. the following to your preamble:

\renewcommand{\bibname}{Whatever floats your boat}

EDIT: Special bibliography packages may use a different mechanism.
