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?

  • Do you have something like \addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Bibliographie} or a \chapter{Bibliographie} before the \printbibliography ? Sep 2, 2016 at 11:31

    Try \markboth{Bibliographie}{Bibliographie} before calling the bibliography.

  • 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.

    @JérômeDequeker: \addcontentsline does not set the headers, \chapter on the other side may be the villain ;-)

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