11.05 Title page

A title page will feature some of the following elements: the full title of the report; the name of the organization or person for whom the report was prepared; the name of the originating organization; the name(s) of the person(s) who wrote the report; the date the report was released; and a distribution list.

Although not all reports have a title page, a written report normally has a title. This title should convey accurately, clearly and concisely the subject of the report to the reader. The omission of verbs and articles, as is done in newspaper headlines, can condense the message. A title in two parts—the main title followed by a colon and subtitle—can make a long title seem shorter. The title must nevertheless contain all the key words needed for a proper description of the text.
