How can I change the “References” to “Reference” in the thebibliography environment?
Change reports text for bibliography

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
