I realised my bibliography was not being included in the ToC, I was taking a look at https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/325853/66353 However, while the inclusion of the option heading=bibintoc in \printbibliography made the trick, in the PDF the link points to a previous section (p. 317 instead of p. 319):

enter image description here

Are there any options to include it on the PDF correctly. I have been going through https://fr.sharelatex.com/learn/Bibliography_management_with_biblatex with no luck. Concretely, the call I am making is


Please, find below a minimum version of the skeleton (with only the implicated libraries) of the main file:

    Mhhh, if you don't have other code that is supposed to add the bibliography to the toc, then \printbibliography[heading=bibintoc,title={References}] should work just fine. Can you reproduce your problem in an MWE/MWEB?

    Have you tried deleting all auxiliary files (.aux, ...) and recompile from scratch?

  • Unfortunately, we can't run your example since we do not have all the files you \include. Can you reproduce the issue in a document where you don't use \include? See also tex.meta.stackexchange.com/q/3343/35864

  • Note also that your MWE misses crucial packages. You do not load hyperref (which is integral to the question). The command \onehalfspacing also needs another package (either drop it in the MWE, or load the relevant package - if it is important, if you can reproduce the issue without it, drop it). Please check your MWE in an empty folder before you submit it to make sure it compiles and actually shows the problem.

  • Thanks a lot @moewe! I am going through minimalbeispiel.de/mini-en.html to create a MWE of this case, however, I am not really sure how to deal with the includes. Should I create "dummy" include ones? Otherwise it is not possible to reproduce the error with the index. Thanks!

I think I figured out what the issue was here, it is necessary to add a \phantomsection. Hence, the code regarding this part goes as follows:

  • It should not be necessary to have to resort to a \phantomsection with \printbibliography[heading=bibintoc,title={References}].
