Need some help with higher order literature

Post by FabioRibeiro2 »

Hello everyone,

In the research we are conducting, several higher-order constructs were applied, but in one of them, we had to choose to abandon some dimensions as the construct did not converge in our study sector.

I read somewhere that sometimes it is not necessary to use such complex constructs to analyze a particular concept. I now need to access that information, but I am not able to find it. Does anyone know of any papers that has worked on this topic? 7

I appreciate your help in advance. I wish you all a great weekend.

Best regards,
Fabio Ribeiro

In Becker et al. (2023) we have a section on higher-order constructs where we summarize the latest advice on this topic.
In addition, Sarstedt et al. (2019) is also a quite good an comprehensive source on this topic.
