In publishing, a nameplate is the title of a newspaper or other periodical in the type style and treatment in which it appears on the front page or cover of the periodical. This is usually equivalent to the logotype of the periodical.
In the United Kingdom and several other Commonwealth countries, the term masthead also applies to the front-page nameplate of a newspaper. In American usage, the term masthead applies to a box or section containing detailed identifying information about ownership, officers and staff, location, frequency of publication, and contact details.
