I'm currently creating a journal with several articles using a template. My problem is that I'm not able to include the title of the article in the TOC, just the sections. Let me show you the problem:

% ------
% Fonts and typesetting settings
\linespread{1.05} % Palatino needs more space between lines

% ------
% Page layout

% ------
% Lettrines

%Paquete Español

% ------
% Abstract

% ------
% Titling (section/subsection)

% ------
% Header/footer
\fancyhead[C]{E-Zine Miura 42  $\bullet$ Noviembre 2014 $\bullet$ Vol. I, Nº. 1}

% ------ Here's the title that I want to include in the TOC

   % ------
   % Maketitle metadata <===> This
        \textbf{The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy }
    \textsc{42}\thanks{Template by \href{http://www.howtotex.com}{UNIVERSE}} \\[2mm]
        \normalsize 42 \\
        \normalsize \href{mailto:frits@howtoTeX.com}{42.com (

%%% ---------------
%%% ---------------




\noindent La Guía del autoestopista galáctico o Guía del viajero intergaláctico        

El título del libro fue inspirado en una Guía verdadera que Adams vio, la cual era 

\lettrine[nindent=0em,lines=3]{A} rthur Dent podría calificarse en todo           sentido como una persona normal. Un sujeto que vive en un pacífico pueblito a las afueras de Londres.

\section{Personajes: Ejemplo de sección}
Maecenas sed ultricies felis. Sed imperdiet dictum arcu a egestas. 
\item Arthur Dent, el protagonista de esta historia, es un hombre normal que     

\section{Otro ejemplo}



As you can see, the main title (The Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy) doesn't appear in the TOC.

You could add the entry manually by writing this line next to command \maketitle.

\addcontentsline{toc}{section}{\LARGE The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy}

Literal meaning of this line is:

add a line in the index TableOfContents, using the same style of the section,
and containing \LARGE The Hitchhiker's....

Anyway beware that command \maketitle works only once in article. To do a journal I think you sould use a dedicated documentclass instead of article. I think there are many around.
