This 2-day meta-analysis workshop provides hands-on exposure to the process involved in conducting a meta-analysis from the planning stage, through the selection of appropriate statistical techniques, through the issues involved in analyzing data, to the interpretation of results. Examples and case studies from the social sciences will be integrated into the discussions and lectures. Day 1 and day 2 of the workshop are designed independently, which allows participants to sign up for one or multiple days depending on their interest and level of experience.

As the amount of research studies is growing exponentially, meta-analytic techniques play a crucial role as they enable to:

- Quantitatively synthesize results across studies to make general conclusions;

- Reduce sampling error;

- Contribute to evidence-based decisions in practice, policy and research.

- Provide detailed information (e.g., what works, when, where, for who and at which cost).


This is significant as researchers, practitioners and policy makers are unable to read all research, reports, texts, etc. In addition, meta-analysis explains contradictory results, prevents politicians to use results that can ‘prove’ their statements, opens a conversation between researchers (questioning the results of each other) and deals with the failure of traditional qualitative reviews.

Stay tuned as webinars, workshops and trainings will be offered on a regular basis.

Short Description Workshop


This workshop provides hands-on exposure to the process involved in conducting a meta-analysis from the planning stage, through the selection of appropriate statistical techniques, through the issues involved in analyzing data, to the interpretation of results. During the workshop, participants will learn how to calculate various kinds of effect sizes and to use them to conduct and make appropriate inferences from meta-analyses. Examples and case studies from the social sciences will be integrated into the discussions and lectures.Break up your post into sections so it's easy for your visitors to read and follow along.


“Meta-Analysis contributes to evidence based theory, practice and policy”

Importance of Meta-Analysis


Meta-analysis is used to combine evidence across different research studies; integrate multiple studies into a single statistical framework; yield more precise estimates of effect sizes; allow for unique treatment comparisons; explain differences arising from conflicting study results; and identify areas for future research. Meta-analytic methods are employed in a diverse array of disciplines across the social, behavioral, health, medical, and agricultural sciences.


“Decisions in practice and policy should be based on scientific research about the effects of these decisions/interventions".

Meta-analysis is a powerful statistical analysis technique that serves this purpose.
