The document titles give an important information about documents. This is why they are frequently used to obtain document keywords. We use them to determine document intentions. To obtain some textual details, we use special information extraction techniques for the construction of extra-topical representations of the documents. This representation reflects a document more completely. A possible use for the representation in the information retrieval is described. This improves the retrieval results.
