# Tex command for changing the heading of references [duplicate]

I want to submit just the abstract of some paper of mine. There I have mentioned just one reference so I need to give the heading reference and not references. Can somebody please tell how to change it? I am using the following command for reference:

\begin{thebibliography}{plain}

\end{thebibliography}

• to be certain, it's necessary to know the document class you're using. for both article and amsart you can say \renewcommand{\refname}{Reference}. Feb 27, 2015 at 17:06
