# Remove cross-references to sections from bibliography entries

I am using an in-document bibliography i.e.

\begin{thebibliography}{99}
\bibitem{R:30}
...
\end{thebibliography}


For reasons unknown this results in latex placing an index of section references to each bibitem after each item, the 1,4, and A in the following example.

Tolsoty, Leo. War and Peace. New York: Ecco, 2007 1 4 A


How can I remove the section references at the end of each bibitem?

• Ah, apparently someone has included a package named hyperref which is causing this behavior. Is there a way to turn off the section references using the hyperref options? – Toaster May 23 '12 at 10:27
• Be sure to set backref=false among the hyperref setup options (or just omit the backref option entirely). – Mico May 23 '12 at 10:37
• Glad this worked! I've posted my comment as an answer; please feel free to upvote and/or accept it. :-) – Mico May 23 '12 at 13:12

You note in a comment that the hyperref package is loaded as well. Be sure to set the option backref=false among the hyperref setup options, or just omit any mention of the backref option entirely. This should stop the unwanted behavior you describe.
