Meta-analysis is essential for cumulative science, but its validity is compromised by publication bias. In order to mitigate the impact of publication bias, one may apply selection models, which estimate the degree to which non-significant studies are suppressed. Implemented in JASP, these methods allow researchers without programming experience to conduct state-of-the-art publication bias adjusted meta-analysis. In this tutorial, we demonstrate how to conduct a publication bias adjusted meta… 

Estimating the change in meta-analytic effect size estimates after the application of publication bias adjustment methods.

Publication bias poses a challenge for accurately synthesizing research findings using meta-analysis. A number of statistical methods have been developed to combat this problem by adjusting the

A Primer on Bayesian Model-Averaged Meta-Analysis

Bayesian model-averaged meta-analysis therefore avoids the need to select either a fixed-effect or random-effects model and instead takes into account model uncertainty in a principled manner.

Bayesian model‐averaged meta‐analysis in medicine

A Bayesian model-averaged (BMA) meta-analysis for standardized mean differences is outlined in order to quantify evidence for both treatment effectiveness δ and across-study heterogeneity τ and to propose specific empirical prior distributions.

Clinicopathological and Prognostic Significance of Inhibitor of Apoptosis Protein (IAP) Family Members in Lung Cancer: A Meta-Analysis

A meta-analysis of clinicopathological variables revealed a significant association between survivin and T stage, UICC stage, the presence of lymph node metastasis, and grade of differentiation in lung cancer, indicating that lung cancer patients might benefit from a targeted therapy against specific IAPs.

Towards an affect intensity regulation hypothesis: Systematic review and meta-analyses of the relationship between affective states and alcohol consumption

Conceptualizing the mood-alcohol nexus in terms of affect intensity regulation may afford a more parsimonious explanation of alcohol consumption rather than viewing the behavior as being shaped by either positive or negative affective states.
