I'm writing a thesis document. After the Appendix section I have the Reference section.

My problem is that my References have three pages total, in the first page appears the bibliography title correctly, as the next picture shows:

enter image description here

But in the next two pages the header appears as if it were part of the appendix, like this:

enter image description here

NOTE: This has the same result if I place the bibliography before the appendix, except that in this case the header changes to the one of the last chapter.

EDIT: This is the code where I call the chapters, appendix and bibliography. Hope it helps to find a solution:




   \parshape 1 \@tempdima \dimexpr\textwidth-2\@tempdima\relax%
  {\par\normalfont\hfill--\ \chapquote@author\hspace*{\@tempdima}\par\bigskip}






%% # Chapters#




EDIT 2: This link have the ezthesis: EZTHESIS

How could I fix this?

  • Can you please provide a link to the document class used (ezthesis)? Nov 27, 2012 at 3:44

    as a last resort, you could put \clearpage and \markboth{Bibliografia}{Bibliografia} before \bibliography{biblio} to reset the running heads. Nov 27, 2012 at 15:07

Thanks to @barbarabeeton 's comment I could fix my problem. Maybe it wasn't the best way to solve it, but it works.

This is the code to solve the problem:

Thanks for the help

    I think this is the best way to solve this, and it is pretty much what the standard book class does: \@mkboth{\MakeUppercase\bibname}{\MakeUppercase\bibname}. You probably should also ask the author of ezthesis to fix this issue.

The appendices (non-essential stuff, that just might interest the reader; but probably won't) go after the bibliography. This is an old custom in printing, which you shouldn't challenge without solid reasons.
