Heterogeneity and small-study effects are major concerns for the validity of meta-analysis. Although random effects meta-analysis provides a partial solution to heterogeneity, neither takes into account the presence of small-study effects, although they can rarely be ruled out with certainty. In this paper, we facilitate a better understanding of the… CONTINUE READING
