[SOLVED] Latex Bibliography

Whenever I create a bibliography in latex using

Code:
\bibliographystyle{plain}

\begin{thebibliography}{1}

\bibitem{Reference 1}Details about Reference 1

\bibitem{Reference 2}Details about Reference 2

\end{thebibliography}
It puts the title `References' above it. Does anyone know how to make it omit the title?

Thanks

72 views and nobody knows how to do it? I figured it was probably somthing simple.

Presumably the solution is to find a bibliography style file that does not write out "Reference".
The only other option is to start redefining various parameters, but that is usually extremely messy so it is not something I would recommend.

Latex is only simple as long as you follow the "templates" (sty-files etc), really customizing the appearance of your documents can be quite a daunting task.

You can just put \renewcommand{\bibname}{} into your preamble, although because that's just renaming the title to be nothing, you get quite a bit of white space above your references which I'm not sure how you could get rid of, although it is a crude way to achieve what you want.

Thanks, I'll play with that, and maybe some negative vertical space to fix it up.

It didn't work, it told me

Error: ! LaTeX Error: \bibname undefined.

Oh are you writing an article as opposed to a report/book?
Try \renewcommand{\refname}{}

Perfect, thanks. Using

\renewcommand{\refname}{}

and then

\vspace{-11mm}

before the bibliography seems to be about perfect.

Thanks so much.
