Meta-analysis is arguably the most important methodological innovation in the last thirty-five years, due to its immense impact on the development of cumulative knowledge and professional practice. This text, now in its updated Third Edition, has been revised to cover the newest developments in meta-analysis methods, evaluation, correction, and more. This reader-friendly book is the definitive resource on meta-analysis.
The text is of eminent importance for everybody that deals with the topic of meta-analysis. With respect to the increasing importance and impact of meta-analyses in several research fields, I used this text to introduce the methods for correcting results for biases and errors in my undergraduate course. The examples further provided the students with a deeper understanding of the method.
