I want to upload an accepted IEEE paper to arxiv, hence I have to manually insert the Copyright notice on the title page. I have already found some questions (e.g., 1, 2 ) on how to put the IEEE copyright notice on a paper. While it is possible to put a copyright notice on the bottom of the title page with the linked answers, the heading is also miraculously changed from the “journal name” to “author names: paper title” (the second instead of the first argument of \markboth).

Example Code which produces the describe results:

%!TEX program = pdflatex
\documentclass[twoside]{IEEEtran}

\makeatletter
% uncomment the following part to see a changing header
%\def\ps@IEEEtitlepagestyle{%
%  \def\@oddfoot{\mycopyrightnotice}%
%  \def\@evenfoot{}%
%}
\def\mycopyrightnotice{%
  \begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
  \centering \scriptsize

  \end{minipage}
}
\makeatother

\begin{document}
\title{A Title}
\author{An Author}
\markboth{IEEE Transactions}%
{An Author: A Title} 
\maketitle
\end{document}

While writing the question, I had the idea to just add an \@oddhead where the custom \@oddfoot is set. It works, but it is not the nicest solution since it requires one to manual copy the first argument of \markboth.

Edit: Looking up the definition of IEEEtran.cls, it is easy to just copy the definion of \@oddhead to avoid the mentioned manual copy of the argument of \markboth.

\makeatletter
\def\ps@IEEEtitlepagestyle{%
  \def\@oddfoot{\mycopyrightnotice}%
  \def\@oddhead{\hbox{}\@IEEEheaderstyle\leftmark\hfil\thepage}\relax
  \def\@evenhead{\@IEEEheaderstyle\thepage\hfil\leftmark\hbox{}}\relax
  \def\@evenfoot{}%
}
\def\mycopyrightnotice{%
  \begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
  \centering \scriptsize

  \end{minipage}
}
\makeatother
