# Bibliography as Chapter in Table of Contents is not working

I added the following package:

\usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage}
\automark{chapter}
\clearpairofpagestyles
\setkomafont{pagehead}{\small\upshape}
\ohead{\rightmark}
\cfoot*{\pagemark}
\renewcommand*\chaptermarkformat{}


This however results in my Bibliography (References) shown as section instead of chapter in the table of contents. Does anyone know why this is the case? I already tried

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Bibliography}


This adds References as Chapter, but the Refernces as Section still remains.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Thank you!

• As always on this site you are much much more likely to get help if you provide a full (but minimal) example others can copy and test as is. You only provide a sniplet wgere we have to guess the rest Jul 17, 2019 at 10:39

Bases on your first question and the given code snippet above (better is to show us a complete short tex code building your bibliography and TOC so we do not have to guess what you are doing ...) first a solution for KOMA-Script only. Please see that I added option bibliography=totoc, for class scrreprt (needed for chapters or scrbook):

\RequirePackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@Book{Goossens,
author    = {Goossens, Michel and Mittelbach, Frank and
Samarin, Alexander},
title     = {The LaTeX Companion},
edition   = {1},
publisher = {Addison-Wesley},
location  = {Reading, Mass.},
year      = {1994},
}
@Book{adams,
title     = {The Restaurant at the End of the Universe},
author    = {Douglas Adams},
series    = {The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy},
publisher = {Pan Macmillan},
year      = {1980},
}
\end{filecontents}

\documentclass[%
fontsize=12pt,
titlepage,
paper=a4,
twoside,
bibliography=totoc, % <===============================================
]{scrreprt}

\usepackage{xurl}

\usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage}
\automark{chapter}
\clearpairofpagestyles
\setkomafont{pagehead}{\small\upshape}
\ohead{\rightmark}
\cfoot*{\pagemark}
\renewcommand*\chaptermarkformat{}

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents % <====================================================

\chapter{Chapter one}
\section{Section one}

\cite{Goossens} and \cite{adams}.
\urlstyle{same}
\bibliographystyle{plain} % <===========================================
\bibliography{\jobname} % <=============================================
\end{document}


and its result:

Please see that the Bibliography is added to the TOC in chapter style (red arrows; compare with Chapter one above).

In your first question you are using apacite. Please note that you have to add option [nosectionbib] to the call of apacite to get the bibliography in TOC in chapter style:

\usepackage[nosectionbib]{apacite} % <=================================


Please see the following complete mwe

\RequirePackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@Book{Goossens,
author    = {Goossens, Michel and Mittelbach, Frank and
Samarin, Alexander},
title     = {The LaTeX Companion},
edition   = {1},
publisher = {Addison-Wesley},
location  = {Reading, Mass.},
year      = {1994},
}
@Book{adams,
title     = {The Restaurant at the End of the Universe},
author    = {Douglas Adams},
series    = {The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy},
publisher = {Pan Macmillan},
year      = {1980},
}
\end{filecontents}

\documentclass[%
fontsize=12pt,
titlepage,
paper=a4,
twoside,
bibliography=totoc, % <===============================================
]{scrreprt}

\usepackage[nosectionbib]{apacite} % <=================================
\bibliographystyle{apacite}

\usepackage{xurl}

\usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage}
\automark{chapter}
\clearpairofpagestyles
\setkomafont{pagehead}{\small\upshape}
\ohead{\rightmark}
\cfoot*{\pagemark}
\renewcommand*\chaptermarkformat{}

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents

\chapter{Chapter one}
\section{Section one}

\cite{Goossens} and \cite{adams}.
\urlstyle{same}
\bibliography{\jobname} % <=============================================
\end{document}


and its result:

Thank you so much for your quick response. I changed

\usepackage{apacite}


to

\usepackage[nosectionbib]{apacite}


and now it is working!
