I am using \usepackage[natbibapa]{apacite} and \bibliographystyle{apacite} to build up my references. I want to cite this report in my article in APA style but the citation does not seem to come out correctly.

I believe the correct way to cite this report is something like this:

Belsom, T., Kirjanas, P., Nagrawala, F., Hayward, S.,
Uhlenbruch, P., & Franklin, E. (2018). Got it covered? Insurance in a changing climate. London. Retrieved from Asset Owners Disclosure Project (AODP): https://aodproject.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/AODP-Got-It-Covered-Insurance-Report-2018.pdf

However, when I use my citation

Address = {London},
Author = {Toby Belsom and Pavel Kirjanas and Felix Nagrawala and Sam Hayward and Peter Uhlenbruch and Emily Franklin},
Date-Added = {2019-07-25 16:16:50 +0200},
Date-Modified = {2019-07-26 10:53:39 +0200},
Publisher = {Asset Owners Disclosure Project (AODP)},
Keywords = {Insurance},
Title = {{Got it covered? Insurance in a changing climate}},
url = {https://aodproject.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/AODP-Got-It-Covered-Insurance-Report-2018.pdf},
Year = {2018}}

it only shows up as this, with the publisher name after the city and not within the Retrieved from section:

Belsom, T., Kirjanas, P., Nagrawala, F., Hayward, S., Uhlenbruch, P., & Franklin, E. (2018). Got it covered? Insurance in a changing climate. London: Asset Owners Disclosure Project (AODP). Retrieved from https://aodproject.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/AODP-Got-It-Covered-Insurance-Report-2018.pdf

I am fairly new to LaTeX and do not want to use any other package like biblatex but rather stick to what I have now. Happy about any tipps!

    Welcome to TeX.SE. The @report entry type is not defined by the apacite bibliography style. BibTeX treats entries of unrecognized type as having the catch-all entry type @misc. – Mico Jul 26 at 11:02
  • Okay thank you @Mico, so what would be the right type to achieve the citation the way I need it? – User2010S Jul 26 at 11:07
  • The apacite bibliography style is programmed to prefix the contents of url fields (usually a URL string) with the string "Retrieved from". Where did you read that the apacite bibliography style should insert "Retrieved from" before the contents of the publisher field instead? – Mico Jul 26 at 11:27
  • Can you provide an example of a bibliography style that places the "Retrieved from" prefix string (or something equivalent) before the publisher field instead of before the url field? – Mico Jul 26 at 11:54

    Examining the online guide you provided a link to closely, it does not look like they unequivocally claim that their examples fully adhere to the APA guidelines. FWIW, the two or three formatted references that do include URL strings at easybib.com/guides/citation-guides/apa-format show the string "Retrieved from" placed immediately before the URL string -- and nowhere else. I would therefore rely on the routines built into the apacite package and bib style. – Mico Jul 26 at 16:06
