Doing Meta-Analysis in R
The dmetar package serves as the companion R package for the guide Doing Meta-Analysis in R by Mathias Harrer, Pim Cuijpers, Toshi Furukawa and David Daniel Ebert. The package contains utility functions to facilitate the conduction of meta-analyses using the meta, metafor, netmeta and gemtc packages.
The latest development version can be installed from GitHub using devtools.
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.
