\usepackage[style=ieee, sorting=none]{biblatex}

Furthermore, I want to remove the page number corresponding to Bibliography in Table of Contents but I can't.

The command \bibsetup is available for inserting code that is to be run at the start of the bibliography. So in this case, you can write


to clear that the page number for that page, or


to also set the pagestyle for the subsequent pages.

  • I used \bibsetup{\thispagestyle{empty}\pagestyle{empty}} \printbibliography[title=References] The first page of Bibliography still has the page number but the next pages does not have it

  • I am sorry, the \renewcommand got omitted from my code. I have now corrected my answer. By the way, I have tested it using article class. Aug 8, 2012 at 12:30
  • Yes, I tried and worked perfectly! Thank you! Now, I am trying to remove the Bibliography page number in TOC.

  • @Iuiserta -- Are you expected to remove the bibliography from the ToC? It is a normal (and useful) thing to have in your table of contents? If so, you should ask it as a separate question and include what article class you are using along with any packages that might influence how your ToC is constructed.

  • Hello jon. What I am trying to do is remove the page number of the Bibliography in TOC. My document class is report and I am not using any package that can influence the TOC. This is how my TOC is generated: \phantomsection \pdfbookmark{Contents}{contents} \tableofcontents

If you are using book or report as the documentclass, the easiest way to remove all page numbers from the "chapter" pages (including the first page of toc, tof, bibliography, ...) is to redefine the plain style automatically used in these pages (unless you explicitely indicated otherwise). With the following lines in the preambule you redefine the titlepage style as empty:


This way you can also force the plain style to be fancy (by replacing "empty" by "fancy")
