Studies published in academic journals, dissertations, reports, and conference materials were gathered through searches of the following electronic databases: Web of Science, Scopus, PubMed, the Cochrane Library—including the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), EBSCOhost (including MEDLINE, SocINDEX, Academic Source, and ERIC), PsycINFO (PsycNET), the Excerpta Medica database (Embase), and the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL). To minimize the possibility of publication bias, a search of theses and dissertations was included (ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Global). A Google Scholar search was used to check for unpublished studies and gray literature, and conference abstracts of thematically relevant conferences (such as Sunbelt 2001–2019 and EUSN 2016–2019) were hand searched; authors were also contacted to identify any unpublished studies.

The search queries included an extensive list of synonyms corresponding to the following three points of interest: SAOMs methodology, drinking behavior, and adolescents. Point 1, analytical methodology, included terms like "longitudinal network analysis", "stochastic actor-oriented models", "stochastic actor-based models", "SAB model", "SABM", "SAOM", "RSIENA" and other relevant terms (see S2 Appendix for complete list of synonyms). Point 2, drinking behavior, included “alco”, “binge”, “drink”, “substance abuse” and other synonyms for alcohol use. Point 3 included words “adolesc*”, “youth”, "young", “student” and other synonyms for young people.

The search queries were formulated for the Web of Science database and adapted for other databases. Full search query is available in S2 Appendix.
