# IEEEtran \title{ * } does not show

I'm practicing LaTeX with IEEEtran.cls. I'm am slowly filling in the information, but I am getting stuck from the beginning.

\documentclass[12pt, journal, compsoc]{IEEEtran}
\begin{document}

\title{ This is my practice document}
\author{Yui}

\begin{abstract}
Abstract content goes here.
\end{abstract}
\end{document}


From the above simple .tex file, after compilation in the PDF, I can see the Abstract content. However, I don't see either title or author.

You have to include the command \maketitle to actually show the title and the authors. \title and \author just store the content. –  Guido Oct 11 '13 at 3:51
Ah! That did it! Thank you! :) –  ElectroJunkie Oct 11 '13 at 4:09
@Guido Maybe you should write an answer (just to close the thread) –  Mario S. E. Oct 14 '13 at 11:40
To output the title and author of a document using IEEEtran.cls (and in almost all LaTeX classes) is produced by the \maketitle command.
