Latex shows bibliography by default as a section. I want it to appear as a chapter.

My code is:

% ....

And the result looks like this:

Βιβλιογραφία                              153
      References . . . . .  . . . . . . . 153

Any ideas? Thanks in advance

    Use \usepackage[nosectionbib]{apacite}. Jul 5, 2014 at 20:13

From page 9 of the current (v6.03) apacite documentation:

With this option, the bibliography is a chapter, if the \chapter command is defined. Otherwise, it is always a section.

So you can use \usepackage[nosectionbib]{apacite}. You can additionally use the numberedbib option if you want the bibliography to appear as a numbered chapter or appendix (this option is not used in the below example).

\setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{CMU Serif} % or any font supporting greek texts
\AtBeginDocument{\renewcommand{\bibname}{Βιβλιογραφία}} % change bib name
  \chapter{Sample Chapter}
  \bibliography{xampl} % sample bib file

enter image description here

    For Greek with xgreek you also need \AtBeginDocument{\renewcommand{\bibname}{Βιβλιογραφία}} in the preamble after having loaded apacite.
