I would like to cite a webpage. Citations are collected in Mendeley 1.17.13 which has BibTex syncing enabled. The citation is inserted into Lyx 2.2.3. with citation style natbib author-year, bibliography style plain, bibliography generator default, BibTex Generated Bibliography style set to apa.

LibreOffice using the Mendeley plug in, produces the right result:

CIF. (2018). What We Do | Climate Investment Funds. Retrieved February 1, 2018, from https://www.climateinvestmentfunds.org/about

Lyx doesn't:

CIF (2018). What We Do | Climate Investment Funds.

How can I add the missing "Retrieved" and "from" fields?

A small Tex file can be found here.

    If LyX literally uses the apa.bst to implement the APA style, it's a very old and poor approximation of APA. To get proper APA style you need to either us biblatex with [style=apa] or the apacite package with the [natbibapa] option \bibliographystyle{apacite}. Since I don't use LyX I can't help you on how to do that, though.

  • LyX supports apa6.

  • I have tried apacite, apacitex, apalike and chicago. None of them produce links and date assessed in the biography.

    @scottkosty apa6 is a document class that has nothing to do with bibliographies.

    Found the solution: in Lyx /Document/Settings/Modules you have to activate Natbibapa. Doing this in the preamble does not work.

Henk, you may try these steps:

  1. In your Mendeley, activate the 'Medium' field for webpage entries in the tool options: (Tools > Options > Document Details)
  2. Then, put the retrieve date and webpage’s url in the medium-field: e.g. Retrieved February 1, 2018, from https://www.climateinvestmentfunds.org/about
  3. Finally, export your Bibtex file and render the document.
