# Prevent biblatex from printing a header

When using biblatex together with myheadings, biblatex adds a header REFERENCES on the pages where the bibliography is. How do I prevent that?

\documentclass{article}
\pagestyle{myheadings} % page numbers in top right corner
\usepackage{fontspec,xunicode,xltxtra} % XeLaTeX
\defaultfontfeatures{Mapping=tex-text} % support TeX conventions like --''
\setmainfont{Linux Libertine O}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage[style = authoryear, backend = biber]{biblatex}

\begin{document}

I want to cite \cite{brunner1965}

\printbibliography

\end{document}


My .bib file:

@PREAMBLE{
"\newcommand{\aumlaut}{\char"00E4}" #
"\newcommand{\uumlaut}{\char"00FC}"
}

@BOOK{brunner1965,
AUTHOR = "Karl Brunner",
TITLE = "Altenglische {G}rammatik",
YEAR = "1965",
ADDENDUM = "{N}ach der angels{\aumlaut}chsischen {G}rammatik von {E}duard {S}ievers",
EDITION = "Dritte, neubearbeitete {A}uflage",
LANGUAGE = "German",
LOCATION = "T{\uumlaut}bingen",
NUMBER = "3",
PAGETOTAL = "x + 436",
PUBLISHER = "Max Niemeyer",
SERIES = "{S}ammlung kurzer {G}rammatiken germanischer {D}ialekte. {A}. {H}auptreihe"}

Which document class do you use? The typesetting of headers is governed mainly by the design decisions embedded in a document class (and, relatedly, the page style associated with a document class). For instance, in the article document class, biblatex will not, by default, typeset headers. –  Mico Jul 31 '12 at 14:20

@Mico: I do use the article class: \documentclass[a4paper, 12pt, onecolumn, oneside, notitlepage]{article} –  Sverre Jul 31 '12 at 15:42
@MarcoDaniel: I didn't understand. There's a guide for how to add your own header, but what should I do to have no header? –  Sverre Jul 31 '12 at 15:44
@MarcoDaniel I guess he's talking about headers and not headings. –  Thorsten Jul 31 '12 at 16:01

For the following remarks I guess you are printing some headings by setting \pagestyle (maybe a package).

The package biblatex defines some special headings which can be called by the option heading. The default setting for the article class is:

\defbibheading{bibliography}[\refname]{%
\section*{#1}%
\markboth{\MakeUppercase{#1}}{\MakeUppercase{#1}}}


The command \markboth procure that you get a heading. The simplest way is the redefinition by

\defbibheading{bibliography}[\refname]{\section*{#1}}


without the command \markboth.
