I have to cite a forthcoming paper. I know this paper will be printed in 2014 in a collective book but I don't have any specific details about the publisher, collection, editors, ... Basically, I just have the title, the author, the date (2014) and an url to a preprint version.

What is the best way to cite such paper in an academic publication? I would like to use @incollection biblatex entry type but without the title of the book I obtained:

enter image description here

@InCollection{doe_articles_2014,
  Title                    = {article's title},
  Author                   = {Doe, John},
  Date                     = {2014},
  Url                      = {http://url_to_preprint_version.pdf}
}

Where do I place the "forthcoming" (or should I write "inpress"?)?

That should be the value of the field pubstate, and descriptions of the different values are in section 4.9.2.11. Maybe prepublished suits best here, "the manuscript is published in a preliminary form or location, such as online version in advance of print publication"?

I wouldn't use @incollection if you don't know anything about that collection anyway, but

@article{doe_articles_2014,
  Title                    = {article's title},
  Author                   = {Doe, John},
  Date                     = {2014},
  Url                      = {http://url_to_preprint_version.pdf},
  pubstate                 = {prepublished}                  
}

Also, add urldate!
