The new edition of the market-leading textbook, covering the latest developments in the rapidly growing field of meta-analysis
This book provides a clear and thorough introduction to meta-analysis, the process of synthesizing data from a series of separate studies. The first edition of this text was widely acclaimed for the clarity of the presentation, and quickly established itself as the definitive text in this field. The fully updated second edition includes new and expanded content on avoiding common mistakes in meta-analysis, understanding heterogeneity in effects, publication bias, reporting the Knapp-Hartung Sidik-Jonkman adjustment, and more. Several brand-new chapters provide a systematic “how to” approach to performing and reporting a meta-analysis from start to finish.
