    Re: bibliography or references

    It strongly depends on what kind of material you are publishing, strictly speaking, 'bibiography' is used if you read papers, books, journals and similar; and... 'Refences' is by far more used because it means you have read books, papers, journals, you have talked to specialists, you have used CD, DVD or other kinda of midia.
