Can you clarify? As in you want sort of a "cover page" instead of the
title/author/date being toward the top/middle of the page, immediately
followed by the TOC on the same page? Googling around, I found a
similar question from... myself!

The suggestion back then was to define your own class, so you'd need
to copy/modify Org's default article class so you get something like:

Google is your friend; there's a bunch of suggestions:
- https://www.google.com/search?q=latex+add+references+to+table+of+contents

Try the StackExchange ones. You might have to replace your current
one-liner with a few other commands as well as loading packages with
some varied options, at least from skimming the top hit.

Google, again:

The common theme is Google -> read -> try stuff -> Google -> read ->
try stuff -> email Org-mode list :)
