The title says it all really. I'm using the rsc bibliography style and placing the references will create the chapter heading "References". Now I do want that gone since this is for a poster and the box/frame will hold "references".

In case a MWE is needed I supply one:

 \usepackage{rsc} %%basically loads natbib 



 Some clever bloke came up with something\cite{cleverbloke2013}.



There must be a way, the natbib documentation is huge and I didn't find something fitting. Since I assume it is possible to change the title of the references it should be possible to change it to an empty title.

    You should be able to do it with \renewcommand{\bibsection}{} after \usepackage{rsc}

    Are you sure that specifying the bibliography style rsc loads the natbib citation management package?

Say \renewcommand{\bibsection}{} after \usepackage{rsc}. See section 2.12 of the manual of natbib.

The list of references normally appears as a \section* or \chapter*, depending on the main class. If one wants to redesign one’s own heading, say as a numbered section with \section, then \bibsection may be redefined by the user accordingly.

The filecontents* environment is just to keep the example self contained; don't use it yourself, but \bibliography{somefile} (you know the real name).
