# Lyx bibliography displaying section number

I am using LyX to write my thesis. I am using a BibTeX Generated Bibliography (generated in Jabref) which works fine. I just have one problem, in the actual PDF, the Bibliography section after each reference, the section where that reference was cited is printed out, for example:

``````[1] R. Budwig, “Refractive index matching methods for liquid flow investigations,” Experiments in Fluids, vol. 17, no. 5, pp. 350–355, 1994. 2.7.4
``````

Where "2.7.4" is the section where this reference is cited.

Is this related to my overall master style file, or is it just a simple setting in LyX that I can disable?

Usually the back references are inserted by package `backref`. Either it is loaded explicitly or it is loaded by package `hyperref` via options `backref` or `pagebackref`. I am not familiar with `Lyx`, but at least you have some hints, what needs to be changed.

Thank you! I found the problem, in my Latex Preambles i had backref as one of the packages to use. Thank you!!!! – Emma Aug 24 '12 at 9:08

I was able to fix this problem easily in lyx by going to: `document -> settings -> PDF Properites` and then unchecking the "Use Hyperref Support."

If I kept the `\usepackage{hyperref}` in the preamble, doing the above would just get rid of hyperlinks from the bibliography entries. If I got rid of `\usepackage{hyperref}`, doing the above would eliminate all hyperlinks throughout the document.

It's not clear that this actually answers the question. The OP is interested in just eliminating the back references in the bibliography, not all hyperlinks in the document. – Adam Liter Dec 24 '13 at 19:32
"would just get rid of hyperlinks from the bibliography entries." In other words -- it gets rid of backrefs in the bibliography. – user43174 Dec 24 '13 at 21:12
