I'm trying to cite two chapters (each written by a different author) of the same book using BibTeX. I know I can use @incolllection or @inbook to do that but then I guess I have to put in the details of the collection for both entry. What I'd like instead is to have three separate entries on the bibliography, more or less like this:

AUTHOR 1. 20XX. "Chapter title" in EDITORS (20XX).
AUTHOR 2. 20XX. "Another chapter title" in EDITORS (20XX).
EDITORS. 20XX. Collection Title

What I tried to do is two create three BibTeX entries:

  @book{editor20xx,
     title = {Collection Title},
     editor = {Editors},
     year = {20xx},
  }

  @incollection{author1,
     title = {Chapter title},
     author = {Author 1},
     editor = {Editors},
  }

  @incollection{author2,
     title = {Chapter title},
     author = {Author 2},
     editor = {Editors},
  }

When I do this, though, I get something like this on the author entry (see entry for Friedman):

I remember seeing a post about how to add an entry for a collection and then just refer back to it in the individual chapter entry but for the life I can't remember where.

Hope you guys can help. Thanks!

From the tags you chose I assume you use indeed BibLaTeX (I am not sure if that would work with plain BibTeX). However, if I am correct, then using the crossref field should do the trick:

@book{editor20xx,
title = {Collection Title},
editor = {Editors},
year = {20xx},
}
    
@incollection{author1,
title = {Chapter title},
author = {Author 1},
crossref = {editor20xx},
}
    
@incollection{author2,
title = {Chapter title},
author = {Author 2},
crossref = {editor20xx},
}
