I want to know if there is a name for this, and how to make one LaTeX.

It's a paragraph, usually on the first page of a research paper, that provides information about the publisher and/or the author(s). It seems to be clearly distinct from adjacent text, perhaps it's even a float.

There is an example of what I mean at the first page of this paper, just above the footnote:

Manuscript created February 25, 2002; revised August 26, 2015. This work was supported by the IEEE. This work is distributed under the L A T E X Project Public License (LPPL) ( http://www.latex-project.org/ ) version 1.3. A copy of the LPPL, version 1.3, is included in the base L A T E X documentation of all distributions of L A T E X released 2003/12/01 or later. The opinions expressed here are entirely that of the author. No warranty is expressed or implied. User assumes all risk

Sorry for being unclear, but I have no idea what search terms to use even.

    It looks to me as you want a footnote without a marker. – campa Sep 5 '17 at 7:48

    You might setup a page layout which includes this in the footline, using scrlayer-scrpage or fancyhdr or something similar. – Skillmon Sep 5 '17 at 7:57
  • Depending on your document class, which is is one of the reasons why you should always give a minimal working example, you can redefine the effect of \maketitle with \makeatother\def\@maketitle{...insert your title page specs here...}\makeatother – Andrew Sep 5 '17 at 10:42

    i couldn't find anything useful in IEEEtran.cls, but \setbox\footins=\vbox{...} does the trick. You can even put it in the preamble. – John Kormylo Sep 5 '17 at 14:25
