Can someone help me to reference this user guide in LaTeX? I'm searching for a tutorial of how to reference a user guide, but can't find one. Does it fall in the category of article?

MIT Java Wordnet Interface (JWI)
User’s Guide
Version 2.2.x
Mark A. Finlayson
November 16, 2011

The bibliography is set by BibTeX with the style plainnat (requires natbib)

I've used TexStudio to generate the citation. It was generated as MIT Java Wordnet Interface (JWI) Users Guide. using the code below:

ALTauthor = {Mark A. Finlayson},
title = {MIT Java Wordnet Interface (JWI) User’s Guide},
date = {November 16, 2011},
OPTlanguage = {English},
OPTversion = {Version 2.2.x},
OPTorganization = {MIT},
OPTpagetotal = {10},
OPTpubstate = {November 16, 2011},

Which bibliography style do you use? Or do you use biblatex? biblatex provided the entry type manual – Marco Daniel Mar 30 '13 at 19:08
I use bibtex....... – Noor Mar 30 '13 at 19:19
plainnat provides the entry techreport – Marco Daniel Mar 30 '13 at 20:18

Ok, with the help of the comments above, this solution was obtained:

author = {Mark A. Finlayson},
title = {MIT Java Wordnet Interface (JWI) User’s Guide},
date = {November 16, 2011},
language = {English},
version = {Version 2.2.x},
organization = {MIT},
