I am writing a scrartcl document using \begin{thebibliography}. The title of the bibliography is displayed automatically and it is "References". Can I change it to "Biography"?

I know that the command \bibname don't work in article class.

Thank you very much.

The name of the bibliography in the standard article class is defined by the \refname command, not the \bibname command (which is used by report and book classes).

Thus

\renewcommand{\refname}{Bibliography}

changes "References" to "Bibliography".

    With babel one should add the definition to the babel switch. – Ulrike Fischer May 15 '16 at 21:30
  • There are KOMA-Script commands to define or to change language dependent names like \refname. If you use \defcaptionname{english}{\refname}{Bibliography}, it will also work with babel and polyglossia if language english is active. – esdd May 16 '16 at 6:59
