In response to the growing emphasis on precision in the summarization and integration of research literature, Advanced BASIC Meta-Analysis presents an overview of strategies, techniques, and procedures used in meta-analysis.

The book and software provide an integrated and comprehensive combination of meta-analytic tools for the statistical integration of independent study results. Advanced BASIC Meta-Analysis has three distinct goals:

* to provide a clear and user-friendly introduction to the procedures and rules of effective meta-analytic integration;

* to present the implicit assumptions and strategies that guide successful meta-analytic integrations; and

* to develop a meta-analytic database management system that allows users to create, modify, and update a database, including the relevant statistical information and predictors, for a given research domain.

The companion software system allows users to perform a full complement of meta-analytic statistical functions with the speed and flexibility of a database management system. It can also construct a wide array of meta-analytic graphic displays. This text and software package serves as a useful introduction to the quantitative assessment of research domains for those new to meta-analyses. It is also a valuable sourcebook for those who have already conducted meta-analyses.
