Tools for Those Who Summarize the Evidence Base
I am conducting a meta-analysis using correlation coefficients as the data I have extracted. To do the analysis I have converted these values to fisher z transformations.
My question is regarding the protocols on reporting the mean effects once I have completed the analysis. After conducting the meta-analysis on the fisher z transformations, should I convert these mean effect values back into correlation coefficients when reporting in the body text, tables etc? Or would I leave them as fisher z transformations in all cases?
Any help in this would be appreciated!
