Masthead (publishing)

In American usage, a publication's masthead is a printed list, published in a fixed position in each edition, of its owners, departments, officers and address details,[1][2] which in British English usage is known as imprint.[3]

In the UK and many other Commonwealth nations, "the masthead" is a publication's designed title as it appears on the front page;[3] what in American English is known as the nameplate.
