As it's so clear, why do people like me ask it?
The title of a publication can be the title of the article of the
review inside Linux Magazine or the title of the blogpost. One does
not call the title of a post or article "name of the post/article" but
well "title". So it's well confusing.

A publication can be anything made available to the public, including
electronic publishing. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Publication)

While a title is (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/title):
3.The name of a book, film, musical piece, painting, or other work of art.
4.A publication.
5.A written title, credit, or caption shown with a film, video, or
performance (usually titles pl).
6.The subject of a writing; a short phrase that summarizes the entire topic.

And a name is (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/name):
1.Any word or phrase which indicates a particular person, place,
class, or thing.

 If one will use that word "title", a short example should be given.
Also can a publication be many things.

Jean, you could say that of almost any word you might choose to use,
and by explaining every word in detail, the document becomes
unreadable. The more specific you get, the more problems can be
created by ommission, too. A somewhat broad definition covers all
eventualities.

Frankly, in common, standard English usage, the expression "Title of a
publication" is extremely clear and few people will misunderstand it.

A blog post has a title, but it is a post, not a publication. The
entire blog is the publication.

A magazine article has a title, but it is not a publication. The
magazine is the publication.

The definition needs to be in good plain english, not written in words
of one syllable.

best,

Helen
