Structural Equation Modeling
Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Taylor & Francis. The founder and current editor-in-chief is George Mercoulides (University of California, Riverside).
It features methodological and applied papers on structural equation modeling, a blend of multivariate statistical methods from factor analysis to systems of regression equations, with applications across a broad spectrum of social sciences as well as biology. It publishes manuscripts from all academic disciplines with an interest in structural equation modeling. These include: psychology, sociology, educational research, political science, economics, management, and business/marketing.
The journal contains theoretical and applied articles, a teachers’ corner, book and software reviews, and advertising. Theoretical articles address new developments and examine current practices. Applied articles deal with both exploratory and confirmatory models. The teachers’ corner provides instructional modules on aspects of structural equation modeling. The book and software reviews afford an opportunity to examine new modeling information and techniques.
According to the Journal Citation Reports, this journal, in 2009, ranked 2 of 38 journals in the category “Social Sciences, Mathematical Methods” and 4 of 80 in the category “Mathematics, Interdisciplinary Applications.”
