### Suppressing the "Reference" title in Bibtex

Dear all,

I am having trouble suppressing the automatically appearing "Reference" title using bibtex in the book article class/ environment. Instead, I want to use \chapter*{Bibliography} (which I also add to the TOC) to have the heading in the same style as other chapters in the book, as you can see at the very end of the code below.

Several solutions have been proposed in other forums, like switching to biblatex or for different article classes like report, article, etc. So I hope there's someone out there to help me.

Below I've added the code. Given that the book consists of multiple chapters (here I only show chapter 1), I'm loading a bunch of packages, which is most likely not the most elegant way, but it works and I want to show all of them to you just for completeness.

Thanks in advance! Best,
Gavino

In your code you have a renewenvironment for thebibliography. look at the start, there you see the section. Replace it and the mark commands with the ones you are using at the very end.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Johannes, thanks a million! I've spent way too much time on this ... certainly should have asked the crowd before.
Just to be clear for everyone, I've "simply" changed

\renewenvironment{thebibliography}[1]     {\section*{\refname}{}%     ...

to

\renewenvironment{thebibliography}[1]     {\chapter*{\refname}{}%      ...

and it immediately worked.
