The original question has been marked closed, but it bytes me today. Original question: Incorrect table of content when using SVMULT (references appear twice per chapter)

I have downloaded the templates again from the indicated pages, the version is % SVMULT DOCUMENT CLASS -- version 5.5 (23-Nov-18) (1st line) resp. \ProvidesClass{svmult}[2018/01/11 v5.5 (The dates differ).

The references entry appears twice. This package also has some strange other "features": When using he subequations environment, the \label command introduces some extra space, such that the distance between text and an aligned formula becomes too large. There are also some strange error messages when using the \label inside a figure caption.

For very strange reasons, the class adds twice the “References” entry in the TOC, in two different ways. Fix: remove one of them.

\documentclass{svmult}

% fix the double printing of references in the TOC
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\AtBeginDocument{%
}
