# Change bibliography heading (Apacite & Babel)

today I tried to set up the latex document for my master thesis and I ran into some troubles with the bibliography. Long story short, I switched to the package Apacite, which provides everything I need. One little thing though. I tried changing the heading of the bibliography from "References" to "Bibliography" but it doesn't work.

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}

}

\end{document}


I'm aware that since I'm using babel I need to surround \renewcommand with \addto{\captionsenglish}{...} which works perfectly to change the heading of my table of contents but it's not working for the bibliography. Can someone provide any help?

You need to load babel after apacite. (And apacite needs to be loaded after hyperref; see below.)

...
\usepackage{hyperref}

\usepackage[apaciteclassic,sectionbib]{apacite}
\bibliographystyle{apacite}

\usepackage[english]{babel}

This issue is mentioned, albeit not all that clearly, on p. 40 of the user guide of the apacite package, under the entry \refname.
Section 8.2 of the user guide of the apacite package provides the following information:
apacite is compatible with hyperref, provided that apacite is loaded after hyperref.
