Hello everyone,

I have a question although I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place for asking it.

In my research I'm calculating a Multilevel Pathmodel instead of a complete SEM. Do you know any citations / papers / statements, that justify the use of path modeling instead of SEM in general or in the multilevel context. I would really appreciate help (if this is an appropriate thread in this forum), as some reviewers of my paper ask for it.

Best regards and thanks,

See the paper on our website:

Preacher, K., Zyphur, M. & Zhang, Z. (2010). A general multilevel SEM framework for assessing multilevel mediation. Psychological Methods, 15, 209-233.
