when I cite the items on the bibliography, I get the page numbers where citation happen appear after the bibliography. For eg: in the image, the number "3" at the end is the page number where this bib item is cited. I don't want this happening.

    Please add a MWE to your question. Without knowing the code you have used it is nearly impossible to give you an appropriate answer. A helpfull hint may nevertheless be, that this behaviour might occure due to an option or package related to so called backreferencing. – leandriis Sep 6 '17 at 13:59

Since the OP does not provide a compilable MWE, it is difficult to troubleshoot the issue. However, the behaviour of back-referencing is usually related to hyperref package, with the extension option for back-referencing invoked, e.g. backref=true and pagebackref=true.

Setting such options to backref=false and pagebackref=false helps disabling back-referencing. For further information, see hyperref manual http://www.tug.org/applications/hyperref/manual.html

  • Where am I supposed to look for backref? I don't find it any of the files. – Joseph Benny Sep 6 '17 at 14:06
  • How am I, then, supposed to know when you do not provide an MWE? – M. Ridha Siregar Sep 6 '17 at 14:09
  • Look for \usepackage{hyperref} \hypersetup{backref=true, pagebackref=true} or something like that. It is guessing, again. – M. Ridha Siregar Sep 6 '17 at 14:14
  • I found it. pagebackref=true was the problem. Thanks! – Joseph Benny Sep 6 '17 at 14:20
  • You're welcome. Glad that it helps. – M. Ridha Siregar Sep 6 '17 at 14:22
