PRISMA InterdisciplinaryMeta-AnalysisReporting Guideline

PRISMA is an evidence-based minimum set of items for reporting in systematic reviews and meta-analyses. PRISMA focuses on the reporting of reviews evaluating randomized trials, but can also be used as a basis for reporting systematic reviews of other types of research, particularly evaluations of interventions.


The New Statistics (+OSF Learning Page) EducationMeta-AnalysisPsychologyReplicationsSoftware

This OSF project helps organize resources for teaching the “New Statistics”–an approach that emphasizes asking quantitative questions, focusing on effect sizes, using confidence intervals to express uncertainty about effect sizes, using modern data visualizations, seeking replication, and using meta-analysis as a matter of course (Cumming, 2011).


JASP InterdisciplinaryMeta-AnalysisSoftware

JASP is a cross-platform software program with a state-of-the-art graphical user interface. The JASP interface allows you to conduct statistical analyses in seconds, and without having to learn programming or risking a programming mistake. JASP is statistically inclusive as it offers both frequentist and Bayesian analysis methods. Open source and free of charge.

DMAS InterdisciplinaryMeta-AnalysisSoftware

The Distributed Meta-Analysis System is an online tool to help scientists analyze, explore, combine, and communicate results from existing empirical studies. It’s primary purpose it to support meta-analyses, by providing a database for empirically estimated models and methods to integrate their results. The current version supports a range of tools that are useful for analyzing empirical climate impact results, but it’s creators intend to expand its applicability to other fields including social sciences, medicine, ecology, and geophysics.

Metalab InterdisciplinaryLinguisticsMeta-AnalysisSoftware

MetaLab is a research tool for aggregating across studies in the language acquisition literature. Currently, MetaLab contains 887 effect sizes across meta-analyses in 13 domains of language acquisition, based on data from 252 papers collecting 11363 subjects. These studies can be used to obtain better estimates of effect sizes across different domains, methods, and ages. Using our power calculator, researchers can use these estimates to plan appropriate sample sizes for prospective studies. More generally, MetaLab can be used as a theoretical tool for exploring patterns in development across language acquisition domains.

AidGrade EconomicsMeta-Analysis

AidGrade conducts open, real-time meta-analyses of impact evaluations on economic development programs. They collect results from impact evaluations and transparently synthesize them, building a database anyone can use.

Curate Science Meta-AnalysisPsychologyReplications

Curate Science is a website that organizes and summarizes independent direct replication results meta-analytically so psychologists and researchers can calibrate their beliefs in empirical findings according to independent replication evidence. Each curated set of replications includes meta-analytic forest plots, links to open data, open materials, and pre-registration information for individual studies, verbal summaries, and comments from original authors.
