Advanced Issues in Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling

Additional resources:


April 2017 | 272 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Written as an extension of A Primer on Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) Second Edition, this easy-to-understand, practical guide covers advanced content on PLS-SEM to help students and researchers apply techniques to research problems and accurately interpret results. The book provides a brief overview of basic concepts before moving to the more advanced material. Offering extensive examples on SmartPLS 3 software (www.smartpls.com) and accompanied by free downloadable data sets, the book emphasizes that any advanced PLS-SEM approach should be carefully applied to ensure that it fits the appropriate research context and the data characteristics that underpin the research.

Key features
KEY FEATURES: 
  • Coverage of advanced concepts demonstrates the PLS-SEM method as a viable alternative to the more popular CB-SEM approach and clearly shows students and researchers how they can apply the techniques to their research problems and accurately interpret the results.
  • Limited use of formulas, equations, Greek symbols, and similar notations makes it easy to understand concepts.
  • Rules of Thumb in every chapter provide practical guidelines on best practices in applying and interpreting PLS-SEM and in preparing manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
  • The same case and database is used throughout the book to facilitate consistency in the issues associated with the case.
  • Free online resources include downloadable data sets and SmartPLS projects to practice techniques covered.
