Title of previous chapter appears in the header of the bibliography chapter in my report. How can I fix that? I should have " Biblographie" instead of " Liste des publications".enter image description here

  • can you please add a minimal example of your code? – touhami Sep 2 '16 at 11:21
  • Do you have something like \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Bibliographie} or a \chapter{Bibliographie} before the \printbibliography ? – Jérôme Dequeker Sep 2 '16 at 11:31

    Try \markboth{Bibliographie}{Bibliographie} before calling the bibliography. – Bernard Sep 2 '16 at 12:00
  • this happens with some document classes when \chapter* is used (a misfeature, in my opinion). so it's important to know which document class you are using. however, the \markboth technique mentioned in another comment usually does the job. but make sure to have a \newpage or \clearpage command before specifying \markboth -- that takes effect immediately. – barbara beeton Sep 2 '16 at 12:20

    @JérômeDequeker: \addcontentsline does not set the headers, \chapter on the other side may be the villain ;-) – user31729 Sep 2 '16 at 16:44

It worked when I added \clearpage and \markboth{Bibliographie}{Bibliographie} right before calling bibliorgraphy.
