The position of Bibliography section is defined by document class, report class is a new page, some articles class no has page break.

How change this witout change the class of the document? So i have a report class but how generate Bibliography without page break.

You can check the report source code, find the macro placing the bibliography, and use \renewcommand in your preamble to remove the call to \pagebreak or similar. – T. Verron Sep 27 '12 at 4:28

Internally, thebibliography environment uses \chapter*; if you want the bibliography to behave like a section, you can patch the \thebibliography command to use \section* instead of chapter*. To do this, add the following lines to the preamble:


A complete example:

\usepackage{lipsum}% just to generate text for the example




\bibitem{a} Test A.

If the biblatex package is used to produce the bibliography, one can use \defbibheading to define a heading using \section*:

If the biblatex package is used to produce the bibliography, you can also use one of the predefined headings, i.e. subbibliography

You can refer to section 3.6.8 Bibliography Headings and Environments in the biblatex manual.

To avoid that problem, I use:

% Hack natbib so it matches the LNCS style: reference list in a
% section with small font and no square brackets.

If you are using the natbib package, you may try the option sectionbib:
