Meta-analysis is arguably the most important methodological innovation in the social and behavioral sciences in the last 25 years. Developed to offer researchers an informative account of which methods are most useful in integrating research findings across studies, this book will enable the reader to apply, as well as understand, meta-analytic methods. Rather than taking an encyclopedic approach, the authors have focused on carefully developing those techniques that are most applicable to social science research, and have given a general conceptual description of more complex and rarely-used techniques. Fully revised and updated, Methods of Meta-Analysis, Second Edition is the most comprehensive text on meta-analysis available today.
"Methods of Meta-Analysis represents the best compilation to date on this relatively new method of statistically aggregating the results of large numbers of independently conducted social and behavioral science."
"The authors of the present text have been among the forceful and prolific advocates of meta-analysis. Both in the earlier edition and in the present, greatly expanded sequel, they argue persuasively that pre-meta-analytic views of research have seriously retarded the accumulation of knowledge in social science. The book makes important reading for meta-analysts and social scientists."
