Substantive-Methodological Synergies (SMS)

Marsh and Hau(2007) and Borsboom (2006) emphasised the need for substantive-methodologicalsynergies (SMS) in psychological research. Substantive-methodological synergiesrepresent joint ventures in which new methodological developments are appliedto substantively important issues. Welive in exciting times of fast-paced innovation in quantitative methods. Thiscreates new research opportunities: methodological innovations enableresearchers to penetrate previously inaccessible research problems, revisitclassic unresolved issues, and address new research issues. However, this alsocreates concerns for substantive researchers who fail to keep pace with newmethodological developments. As pointed out by Marsh and Hau (2007): (a)some of the best methodological research is based on the development ofcreative methodological solutions to problems that stem from substantiveresearch; (b) new methodologies provide important new approaches to currentsubstantive issues; and (c) substantive-methodological synergies areparticularly important in applied areas. The converse is also likely: researchers with strong methodologicalskills might lose touch with the need to present statistical tools in ways thathave practical and theoretical significance. Substantive-methodologicalsynergies are also useful in demonstrating the practical advantages ofstatistical innovations to substantive research and to present thoseinnovations in a clear and replicable way to applied researchers who might lackthe formal mathematical training necessary to be able to dig into statisticalpapers. Substantive-methodological synergies represents the core of myresearch program.

Leading a research program centered onsubstantive-methodological synergies involvestwo core components. A first component is to remain open to collaborativeopportunities with substantive experts seeking better, clearer, or simply moreprecise answers to critical research questions. A second component focuses on a number of key statistical models that I particularly enjoy using, illustrating, but alsoworking at improving in terms of applications and interpretations: psychometric models (ESEM, Bifactor ESEM), person-centered analyses, longitudinal analyses ofchanges, and their combination.
