Abstract

This is a commentary about contemporary understanding of mediation testing. Specifically, this commentary highlights that outdated concepts of mediation testing are still highly preva- lent in the mindsets of researchers and that many researchers use software based on contem- porary mediation testing wrongly, misinterpret results or describe mediation in terms of out- dated concepts while inappropriately referring to literature about contemporary concepts.
