I have writing my first Latex document so this may be bit of a beginners questions. I have using the natbib package for agsm harvard style bibliography in my report. I have to cite a few reports I found online and didn't find any readymade bibtex entry. I guess I will have to write it myself. But I am confused as to how to do this.

The first one is a white paper my the UMTS forum. I give the link here Mobile Broadband Evolution

Under what category do I put these and what would be the bibtex entry?

The next one is a technical report

I found the bibtex entry for the whole technical report, which is:

     title = {{Mobile Systems IV}},
     author = {Burkhard Stiller and Thomas Bocek and Fabio Hecht and Guilherme Machado and Peter Racz and Martin Waldburger},
     group = {csg},
     year = {2010},
     institution = {University of Zurich, Department of Informatics},
     month = {01},
     Date-Added = {2010-01-11 10:05:52},
     Date-Modified = {2010-07-22 12:08:45}

but I need to cite one of the chapters from that report. Which has its own author.

How would I do that?

You can treat the white paper as a report. Just fill all necessary fields, natbib will give a proper output.

For the report, here is an example. It comes from a book which chapters have different authors. It might help.

@incollection {springerlink:10.1007/978-0-387-78875-3_9,    
   author = {Kaastra, J. S. and Paerels, F. B. S. and Durret, F. and Schindler, S. and Richter, P.},    
   affiliation = {SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research Sorbonnelaan 2 3584 CA Utrecht The Netherlands},    
   title = {Thermal Radiation Processes},    
   booktitle = {Clusters of Galaxies},    
   editor = {Kaastra, Jelle},    
   publisher = {Springer New York},    
   isbn = {978-0-387-78875-3},    
   keyword = {Physics},    
   pages = {155-190},    
   url = {http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/978-0-387-78875-3_9},    
   note = {10.1007/978-0-387-78875-3_9},    
   year = {2008}

White papers and technical reports are not book chapters. The whole point is that they are not formally published anywhere. This example is irrelevant. –  SigmaX Jun 23 at 18:13
