I would like to add a note in the LaTeX Chapter environment that the work I am describing in the following has been published in a paper. In other words, it should look something like this:

Chapter 6

The Evolution in research

The research described in this Chapter has been published in:
R. Moor and J.Morris. The Evolution of Research, Workshop on
Education, 2010, pp. 180-190


Once upon a time .... 

Or alternatively:

The research described in this Chapter has been published in:
R. Moor and J.Morris. The Evolution of Research, Workshop on
Education, 2010, pp. 180-190

Chapter 6

The Evolution in research


Once upon a time .... 

Anyone an idea if there is something like a template for doing that in LaTeX?

Is this meant to be your contribution to an edited collection? Formatting the chapter is then not your problem. Putting the information in a \thanks note in the title seems appropriate. –  Charles Stewart Nov 8 '10 at 8:56

With the KOMA classes you could define a chapter preamble with the command \setchapterpreamble. Using a BibTeX style that has full citation support, e.g. biblatex, you could do the following:

\documentclass[english]{scrreprt}
\listfiles
\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@BOOK{Moor.Morris2010,
  author = {R. Moor and J. Morris},
  title = {The Evolution of Research},
    subtitle = {Workshop on Education},
  year = {2010}
}
\end{filecontents}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage{babel,csquotes}

\usepackage[
  style=authortitle
]{biblatex}
\bibliography{\jobname}

\begin{document}
\setchapterpreamble{%
  \begin{quote}
      The research described in this Chapter has been published in: 
      \fullcite[180-190]{Moor.Morris2010}.
    \end{quote}
}
\chapter{The Evolution in research}

Once upon a time~\ldots
\end{document}

You could put anything inside the \setchapterpreamble command, not only a quote environment, but also plain text. You could e.g. also use KOMA’s \dictum command:

\setchapterpreamble{%
  \dictum{%
    The research described in this Chapter has been published in: 
    \fullcite[180-190]{Moor.Morris2010}.
}}
\renewcommand*{\dictumwidth}{.5\textwidth}
