Learning More

The dmetar package was developed for the online guide Doing Meta-Analysis in R by Mathias Harrer, Pim Cuijpers, Toshi Furukawa and David Daniel Ebert. This guide gives an introduction on how meta-analyses can be conducted in R, with a focus on biomedical and psychological research.

The guide was designed to serve as a low-threshold entry point for researchers who want to learn about meta-analysis using R. No prior knowledge of R or RStudio is required. The guide provides a more detailed overview of dmetar functions and how they can be used in combination with go-to meta-analysis packages such as metafor or meta.
