I'm citing a technical report that is made up of a number of large chapters, each with their own authors. Each chapter states something like this:

Cite as:

Sub-author 1, sub-author 2. (year). Chapter title. In: editor 1, editor 2 (eds): Report title.

Is there a proper way to cite something in this way using BibTeX? I haven't found anything useful through searching. Should I just cite the overall work, or should I take details from both to come up with a more usual citation entry that doesn't include "In:"?

    It really depends on the bibliography style (the .bst) you use, but it is common for them to have @inbook, @incollection, and @inproceedings. As to which one works best, it will depend on your best judgment as to which entry type suits your requirements best. – jon Jul 9 '14 at 15:14
