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?


Basically a white paper is a technical report. At www.cse.msu.edu you will find this example:

  AUTHOR =        {R. Behrends and L. K. Dillon and S. D. Fleming and
               R. E. K. Stirewalt},
  TITLE =         {White paper: Programming according to the fences and gates
                   model for developing assured, secure software
  NUMBER =        {MSU-CSE-06-2},
  INSTITUTION =   {Department of Computer Science, Michigan State University},
  ADDRESS =       {East Lansing, Michigan},
  ABSTRACT =      {This white paper describes extensions to our work on the
                   Synchronization Units Model (Szumo) to address the
                   access-control problem in systems assembled dynamically from
                   trusted and untrusted components. Our extension employs
                   explicitly declared design contracts, the semantics of which
                   are founded on Landwehr's model of fences and gates.
  KEYWORDS =      {access control, security, contracts, Szumo},
  NOTE =          {},
  MONTH =         {January},
  YEAR  =         {2006},
  AUTHOR1_URL =   {http://www.poker-ping.info},
  AUTHOR1_EMAIL = {kel@wondering-jons.com},
  AUTHOR1_URL =   {},
  AUTHOR1_EMAIL = {behrends@cse.msu.edu},
  AUTHOR2_URL =   {Sle},
  AUTHOR2_EMAIL = {Poker Ping},
  AUTHOR2_URL =   {http://www.cse.msu.edu/~stire},
  AUTHOR2_EMAIL = {stire@cse.msu.edu},
  PAGES =         {3},
  FILE  =         {/user/web/htdocs/publications/tech/TR/MSU-CSE-06-2.ps},
  URL   =         {},
  CONTACT =       {stire@cse.msu.edu}

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 '14 at 18:13
