Abstract: Ecological momentary assessment (EMA) and experience sampling methods (ESM) are becoming increasingly prevalent in mood disorders research due to their potential for capturing underlying dynamic mood processes that cannot be observed through traditional clinical visits. There have also been recent statistical developments that allow for innovative EMA/ESM-related research questions to be answered. However, even the most sophisticated statistical methods cannot glean accurate representations of underlying mood processes when the data are sampled inappropriately. Unfortunately, there are few resources investigators can use to make informed decisions about EMA/ESM study design. Thus, we perform a comprehensive summary of current EMA/ESMstudy design methods used in mood disorders research, explore the rationale behind study design decisions, and investigate the relationship between compliance and various study design features. Results from these analyses are used to suggest improvements f or designing and reporting future EMA/ESM studies. (More)
