A primer on the conditional mediation analysis in PLS-SEM


Cheah, Jun Hwa and Nitzl, Christian and Roldan, Jose L. and Cepeda-Carrion, Gabriel and Gudergan, Siegfried P. (2021) A primer on the conditional mediation analysis in PLS-SEM. Data Base for Advances in Information Systems, 52 (spec.1). 43 - 100. ISSN 1532-0936; ESSN: 2331-1622


Conditional mediation (CoMe) analysis integrates mediation and moderation analyses to examine and test hypotheses about how mediated relationships vary as a function of context, boundaries, or individual differences. Although CoMe analysis can be a crucial element of empirical studies that seek to advance theory in information systems, applications of such analysis are scarce, in general, and in partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM), in particular. This paper clarifies conceptual fundamentals of and develops guidelines for CoMe analysis within the PLS-SEM context. Furthermore, the paper outlines the illustrative use of CoMe analysis in PLS-SEM and presents detailed step-by-step procedures to do so in the PLS-SEM setting. Overall, this paper provides researchers and practitioners with the required knowledge to properly carry out, report, and interpret CoMe analysis in PLS-SEM.
