I am trying to print my publications list on my CV. It currently looks like this in the LaTeX:


enter image description here

I would like to get rid of the "References title". Adding [heading=none] to \printbibliography gives me this:

enter image description here

This does get rid of the heading, but also the numbering for the entries. How can I get the entry numbers back?


I am using this template.

Update 2:

Here is an MWE:


  title = {Squiggle: A User-Friendly Two-Dimensional {{DNA}} Sequence Visualization Tool},
  issn = {1367-4803, 1460-2059},
  shorttitle = {Squiggle},
  doi = {10.1093/bioinformatics/bty807},
  journal = {Bioinformatics},
  author = {Lee, Benjamin D},
  editor = {Hancock, John},
  month = sep,
  year = {2018},
  file = {/Users/BenjaminLee/Zotero/storage/LRIZZCAE/Lee - Squiggle a user-friendly two-dimensional DNA sequ.pdf}

  title = {Python {{Implementation}} of {{Codon Adaptation Index}}},
  volume = {3},
  issn = {2475-9066},
  doi = {10.21105/joss.00905},
  number = {30},
  journal = {Journal of Open Source Software},
  author = {Lee, Benjamin D.},
  month = oct,
  year = {2018},
  pages = {905},
  file = {/Users/BenjaminLee/Zotero/storage/V3MQVKZW/Lee - 2018 - Python Implementation of Codon Adaptation Index.pdf}

rSection is defined via a list environment. \printbibliography is also implemented as a list and when those lists are nested without breaking out of vertical mode that can lead to strange effects.

The easiest solution I could find was to issue \leavevmode before \printbibliography

\documentclass{resume} % Use the custom resume.cls style



Bibliography with numeric labels in all positions as desired.

  • @BenjaminLee Try {\setlength{\parskip}{0pt}\leavevmode\printbibliography[heading=none]}
