Change reports text for bibliography

I am writing my CV in LaTeX and I am using BibTeX to easily show all my publications. As resume jargon uses the term 'References' at the group of people they can get in touch with to ask about me I was wondering if I could change the title of the section of 'References' for something like 'Selected Publications'. My document class is article.

  • The best would be to add a minimal example to your question. But it should suffice if you just indicate the document class. – Thorsten Donig Jan 18 '12 at 18:56
  • The document class is letterpaper – pedrosaurio Jan 18 '12 at 18:58
  • what document class are you using? look in it to see if it defines \refname. if it does, then you can just say \renewcommand{\refname}{Selected Publications}. (not posting this as an answer as it has already probably been asked, but i don't have time to search for duplicates.) – barbara beeton Jan 18 '12 at 18:59
  • letterpaper is a paper size, not a document class. We're after \documentclass[..]{<this>}. – Werner Jan 18 '12 at 19:01
  • You may be after \renewcommand{\bibname}{Selected Publications}. If so, this is a duplicate: Renaming the bibliography page using BibTeX. Please see if this solves your problem and report back. – Werner Jan 18 '12 at 19:04
