I would like to call the references section Supplementary References.

Currently, there is a line above the references with no section name.

If I use the \def\bibsection{\section*{Supplementary References}} as suggested in other threads this will display as Supplementary References and a section number at the end. I suppose this is because of this line \titleformat{\section}{\normalfont\Large\bfseries}{}{0em}{#1\ \thesection}.

How could I do this without displaying the number, just Supplementary References?


%\def\bibsection{\section*{Supplementary References}} 

% encoding

\titleformat{\section}{\normalfont\Large\bfseries}{}{0em}{#1\ \thesection}

\setlength{\parskip}{0.1cm plus4mm minus3mm}
\usepackage[top=1in, bottom=1in, left=0.75in, right=0.75in]{geometry}


% Math packages

\usepackage[hyperindex,colorlinks,hyperfootnotes = false,citecolor = blue,]{hyperref}





\renewcommand{\figurename}{Supplementary Figure}

\section{Supplementary Note}

  • I don't know if it fits your needs, but if you don't use the package babel and use (uncomment) the syntax \renewcommand\refname{Supplementary References}, the References will appear with your desired text followed by the section number as you defined in the line starting with titleformat. I would also suggest to inform a MWE, removing all non necessary packages if this idea does not fit your needs. – FHZ Feb 7 at 14:00
