Common Method Bias

Post by jsoveral » Sun Sep 02, 2012 5:37 pm

Does anyone know of any literature involving the use of Lindell & Whitney's (2001) correlation-based marker variable technique through PLS? Specifically, most studies that control for CMB through the MV technique involve CBSEM, which is conducted at the manifest variable level. However, PLS can only conduct this analysis at the latent variable level.

Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Thank you,
