Meta-Analysis Resources

Tools for Those Who Summarize the Evidence Base

Resources and networking for those who conduct or interpret meta-analyses related to any phenomenon that is gauged in multiple studies.

  1. Advance the science. If we do meta-analysis better, science and application will profit, and resources can be better allocated for these purposes.
  2. Assume a general, broad audience. Some, perhaps most, readers will not be university affiliated at all. Some may have no clue (yet) what the heck a ‘meta-analysis’ is. (Perhaps they think, “super-Freud,” as though "meta-analysis" means "super-psycho-analytic"?) Thus, folks will certainly care very little about, say, "PSYC 5131" (a meta-analysis course at a certain university).
  3. Be brave! You might be a mere beginner at meta-analysis: So much the better! Meta-analysis is spreading widely (some might say "wildly") around the scholarly world, and it is largely because beginners continue daring to do it. Therefore: The things you are learning even while being a beginner may be vastly valuable to other beginners—perhaps most valuable—and therefore should be shared. Enuf said.
  4. Be modest! By the same token: OK, maybe you really have done something great with meta-analysis or with resources to facilitate meta-analysis, but one can go too far, right?
  5. Invite your friends to join! Let a thousand flowers bloom!
Meta-analytically yours, Blair

Here's a reminder to the collective to focus on matters meta-analytic. You can socialize all you want with each other, but let's use email rather than public posts for that, OK? I'll suspend members who do not seem truly interested in the scientific method of meta-analysis.
