This is how I've re-defined chaptermark:

\chaptername\ \thechapter.%
\ #1}}{}}

I want to re-define sectionmark in the same way, using \scshape.

Where do I have to put \scshape in \renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{\markright{\thesection ~ \ #1}}?

  • I'd try/use \renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{\markright{\scshape\thesection ~ \ #1}}. Note that \scshape doesn't take an argument, so the two braces you used after it aren't necessary. You might wanted to use \textsc which would take an argument. – Skillmon likes topanswers.xyz Oct 10 '17 at 10:01

Putting my comment into an answer:

You might use \renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{\markright{\scshape\thesectio‌​n ~ \ #1}}. Please note that \scshape is a switch (similar to \bfseries) and doesn't take an argument. You could as well use \textsc which would take an argument using \renewcommand{\sectionmark}[1]{\markright{\textsc{\thesectio‌​n ~ \ #1}}}.
