I had a chat with Belinda Poole, a graduate student from the University of Sydney (my alma mater!), about her first meta-analysis. We discuss the publication of meta-analysis protocols, how to best find mistakes in your data extraction, and using the JAMOVI software package as a stepping stone to R for meta-analysis.LinksTutorial paper on meta-analysisP uniformStatcheckR meta-analysis mailing listJAMOVITwitterVideo episodes on InstagramVideo episodes on YouTube

In this episode, I share an audio version of a recent paper on Bayesian alternatives for null hypothesis significance tests.

I recently had a chat with Thea, a PhD student from New York University, about her first meta-analysis. We discuss the value of learning meta-analysis, the difference between publication bias and small study bias, leave-one-out analyses, using the R meta-analysis mailing list for solving problems, comparing correlations, and the benefits of Twitter when you're learning a new skill.-------LinksTutorial paper on meta-analysisTOSTER R packageR meta-analysis mailing listComparing correlationsTwitter ...
