Network approaches to psychopathology hold that mental disorders arise from the interplay between symptoms in a network structure1, 2. In the past few years, statistical techniques that estimate networks were developed and applied to many disorders3. As empirical findings start to accumulate, the question arising is which of these findings are robust and replicable. Here we evaluate the state of psychopathological network research based on three methodological criteria: model quality, precision, and replicability.
