We clarify points of agreement and disagreement with Schnurr, Rosenberg, and Oxman, as put forth in their article appearing this issue.

This is a matter of empirical research, but it is also dependent upon the meaningfulness of the content categories used in the analysis. We prefer a theory-driven, construct validational approach that: employs well validated coding schemes to assess psychologically meaningful concepts.
