COURSE IN META-ANALYSIS using R

February 2019

Meta-analysis, the use of statistical methods to summarize the results of independent studies has many advantages over narrative reviews. Most importantly, the method is quantitative and can provide more precise estimates of the effects than those derived from the individual studies included in a review. Consequently, the methodology is a powerful statistical tool for the summarization of large sets of data, which allow a quantitative synthesis of results from numerous scientific studies. This type of analysis has been used in the medical science as well as in the social science for a considerable time and is now increasingly used in a broader field including environmental sciences and ecology (see e.g. Arnqvist & Wooster 1995). We are very pleased that we can invite Dr. Shinichi Nakagawa from University of New South Wales, Australia. The course provides both lectures, as well as computer assignments in the programming language R.
