Hi Olaf!

Of course, all the known caveats of comparing logistic regression across 
different studies apply for ERGMs, too.

  * Allison, Paul. 1999. Comparing Logit and Probit Coefficients Across
    Groups. Sociological Methods and Research 28(2): 186-208.
    Long, J. S. (2009). Group comparisons in logit and probit using
    predicted probabilities. /Department of Sociology, University of
    Indiana. Unpublished manuscript/.
    Hoetker, G. (2007). The use of logit and probit models in strategic
    management research: Critical issues. /Strategic Management
    Journal/, /28/(4), 331-343.
  * Williams, Richard. 2009. Using Heterogeneous Choice Models to
    Compare Logit and Probit Coefficients across Groups. Sociological
    Methods & Research 37(4): 531-559.

Just to mention a few papers. I am not aware of a systematic treatment 
of these issues for ERGMs, but would appreciate any information!

Best regards, Christian
