# How to show a different section title than 'References' for the reference list? [duplicate]

I am writing my CV in LaTeX and I am using BibTeX to easily show all my publications. As resume jargon uses the term 'References' at the group of people they can get in touch with to ask about me I was wondering if I could change the title of the section of 'References' for something like 'Selected Publications'. My document class is `article`.

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

The best would be to add a minimal example to your question. But it should suffice if you just indicate the document class. – Thorsten Donig Jan 18 '12 at 18:56
The document class is letterpaper – pedrosaurio Jan 18 '12 at 18:58
what document class are you using? look in it to see if it defines `\refname`. if it does, then you can just say `\renewcommand{\refname}{Selected Publications}`. (not posting this as an answer as it has already probably been asked, but i don't have time to search for duplicates.) – barbara beeton Jan 18 '12 at 18:59
`letterpaper` is a paper size, not a document class. We're after `\documentclass[..]{<this>}`. – Werner Jan 18 '12 at 19:01
You may be after `\renewcommand{\bibname}{Selected Publications}`. If so, this is a duplicate: Renaming the bibliography page using BibTeX. Please see if this solves your problem and report back. – Werner Jan 18 '12 at 19:04
