Description

This book provides a clear and thorough introduction to meta-analysis, the process of synthesizing data from a series of separate studies. Meta-analysis has become a critically important tool in fields as diverse as medicine, pharmacology, epidemiology, education, psychology, business, and ecology.

Résumé
Born from the teachings of a popular meta-analysis course, Introduction to Meta-Analysis provides a concise and clearly presented discussion of all the elements in a meta-analysis. Written by four of the leading names in meta-analysis research, many points are explained visually by using screenshots from Excel spreadsheets and computer programs.
