I'm having a bit of trouble trying to remove the page number hyperlinks displayed after references in the bibliography, for example:

[39] E. Economou, Green's Functions in Quantum Physics. Springer, 3rd ed., 2006. 7, 26

I found on a previous answer that the usual culprit is \usepackage{hyperref}

in the preamble, but after disabling this I still have the problem. I can't see any other reference package that might be enabling this option, but here is the preamble and the bit where I insert my refernces. I also tried changing reference styles but this didn't remove the page numbers either!

  • Just some macros for repeated insertion of figures etc, they aren't used in my code so I've removed them just now and my results are still the same.

  • Perhaps you should also remove hyperref option of biblatex package (for example : \usepacakage[style=authoryear-comp,hyperref]{biblatex}). You MWE is incomplet so I can see if you have this option or not.

Quoting the OP:


The problem was found within the custom class I was using, {Latex/Classes/PhDthesisPSnPDF} as I was using the CUEDThesisPSnPDF template for my thesis. Within the class I searched for pagebackref in the hyperref package and just added "= false", so it now reads pagebackref = false,
