But how does that fill the content of \title{...} with what already
exists in \chapter{...} in the inputted file?

For example the header file looks like:

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{report}

\author{Alan Litchfield}
\title{<I want the chapter text to appear here in the output>}
\date{\today}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\input{includes/production}

\renewcommand\bibname{References}
\bibliographystyle{apacite}
\bibliography{SemanticsOfWork}

\end{document}

And where production.tex looks like

\chapter{Work as the means to production}
\section{Introduction}
\nobreak
blahblahblah

Cheers
Alan
