Overview

What research designs and methodological features qualify a study for meta-analysis and which disqualify it? What types of research reports are appropriate for the meta-analysis? What is the cultural and linguistic range of the studies to be included? By integrating and translating the current methodological and statistical work into a practical guide, the authors address these questions to provide readers with a state-of-the-art introduction to the various approaches to doing meta-analysis.

Editorial Reviews

ORGANIZATIONAL RESEARCH METHODS, April 2002 - Chockalingam Viswesvaran
"A book that describes the steps involved in a meta-analysis in an easy-to-understand format (not just as a cookbook recipe) will be a useful addition to the literature. Practical Meta-Analysis aptly fills this niche. "
Booknews
Lipsey (public policy, Vanderbilt U.) and Wilson (criminology and criminal justice, U. of Maryland) describe a form of survey research in which research reports rather than people are surveyed. They explain the strengths and weaknesses of the technique and how to select relevant research studies, to code their various characteristics and quantitative findings, and to analyze and describe their collective results in a valid and useful manner.
