Priors for residual correlations in B... PreviousNext

Are there examples available of how to specify small variance priors for residual correlations in Bayes CFA? I understand how to specify priors for cross-loadings and that priors for residual correlations are less straightforward and that three methods are available. I see there are examples of the results of such analyses but cannot find any input examples.

Thank you,
