many thanks for the fantastic metaSEM package! I used it to combine models from two original studies.
(1) What astonishes me is that some of the structural parameters estimates from TSSEM Stage 2 are even larger than the ones from the individual studies (e.g. study 1: beta = -.40; study two: beta = -.53; TSSEM2: beta = -.66). Naively I had expected that the comnbined TSSEM2 etimates should be somewhere between the ones of the original studies. I am wondering how this is possible. Can I trust this finding?
(2) Since my model contains two mediation paths: Is it possible to get LB confidence intervals for indirect effects?
