Hi Sze Yin,

If you are referencing two chapters within the same book that are written by different authors then yes you would have two separate references in your reference list. Generally the in text reference would be the author of the chapter and the year the book was published and the reference list would follow the conventions set out in this example, which I'll cut and paste below:

chapter author year, 'chapter title', in editor's name (ed.), Book title, Publisher, Place, page range of chapter

Example:

Coleman, S. 2003, 'Democracy in an e-connected world', in R. Davidson (ed.), The e-connected world: risks and opportunitiesMcGill Queens University Press, Montreal, pp. 125-32.
