Eksplorerende strukturmodeller - noen artikler

To follow up the discussion about EFA and CFA, there are a couple of recent interesting papers, discussing how the flexibility of EFA can be merged with the confirmatory approach of SEM, to yield what the authors call Exploratory Structural Equation Modeling.
The original paper is
Asparouhov, T., & Muthén, B. O. (2009). Exploratory structural equation modeling. Structural Equation Modeling, 16, 397-438.
and two recent applications are
Marsh, H. W., Muthén, B. O., Asparouhov, T., Lüdtke, O., Robitzsch, A., Morin, A. J. S., et al. (2009). Exploratory structural equation modeling, integrating CFA and EFA: Application to students’ evaluations of university teaching. Structural Equation Modeling, 16, 439-476.

(From Paolo Ghisletta on SEMNET)
They all discuss the following overview paper on rotation techniques in EFA:
