Henseler, J., Dijkstra, T. K., Sarstedt, M., Ringle, C. M., Diamantopoulos, A., Straub, D. W., Ketchen, D. J., Hair, J. F., Hult, G. T. M. and Calantone, R. J. (2014), "Common Beliefs and Reality about Partial Least Squares: Comments on Rönkkö & Evermann (2013)", Organizational Research Methods, Vol. 17 No. 2, pp. 182-209.
We confirmed problems with the classical Fornell-Larcker criterion for assessing discriminant validity in PLS-SEM. We continued researching this issue and further substantiated problems with the classical discriminant validity assessment criteria in PLS-SEM. As a solution, we propose the new HTMT criterion (which has already been integrated in the new SmartPLS 3 version, http://www.smartpls.com). You can find the results of this research in the following article:
Henseler, J., Ringle, C. M. and Sarstedt, M. (2014), "A New Criterion for Assessing Discriminant Validity in Variance-based Structural Equation Modeling", Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, online available.
Take a look, it’s OPEN ACCESS: http://link.springer.com/article/10.100 ... 014-0403-8
