I am new to latex. I have all my references contains in `bibfile.bib`. However, I have formatted my document to output separate bibliographies after each section. In my main tex file I have:

``````\usepackage[section]{chapterbib}
\usepackage{apacite}

\include{section1}
\include{section2}
\include{section3}
``````

In each `section#.tex` file, at the end, I have:

``````\bibliographystyle{apacite}
\bibliography{bibfile}
``````

I am not using biblatex or natbib or anything else. Everything works perfectly, except each reference section starts like this:

I would like to get rid of these headers entirely, and perhaps use a `\subsection` so that the reference section is numbered properly. Or at least, get rid of two of the three "Reference" headings...

I see several similar threads, but they are using different packages and I can't seem to figure this out. I know I should be able to remap the Reference header, but I can't find a solution that works.

Note: `\renewcommand{\refname}{}` doesn't work. Not only does it leave a big space in place of the reference header, it doesn't get rid of the last `*References`

Please post a short, complete example code that reproduces the problem. Without that it will be difficult for anyone to help you. –  Ian Thompson Jan 31 '13 at 10:18
Each `\bibliography` command prints such a title. Have a look at the following FAQ answer about multiple bibliographies –  Andrew Swann Jan 31 '13 at 10:32
@AndrewSwann hmm i think that's for using multiple bibliography files, no? I only have one .bib file –  Jeff Jan 31 '13 at 10:38
As Ian Thompson, said we need more details of what you are doing, to avoiding guessing too much. Providing a minimal working example (MWE) would be best. The FAQ I provided, links to another question about bibliographies per chapter, which also applies to other sectional units. –  Andrew Swann Jan 31 '13 at 10:42
@AndrewSwann I have already edited my question, but please let me know if this is not sufficient –  Jeff Jan 31 '13 at 10:44

According to the apacite package documentation, using the sectionbib option of chapterbib is not recommended.

The solution is to use the sectionbib option of apacite in conjunction with chapterbib, i.e.

``````\usepackage[sectionbib]{apacite}
\usepacakge{chapterbib}
``````

then simply print your bibliography in each section as usual:

``````\bibliographystyle{apacite}
\bibliography{bibfile}
``````
