Meta-Essentials is a set of workbooks that facilitate the integration and synthesis of effect sizes from different studies and provide figures, tables, and statistics that might be helpful for interpreting them. Meta-Essentials generates (“overall” or “meta”) statistical information regarding a set of studies of the same phenomenon based on the statistical information from each separate study.

The workbooks and a pdf-version of this user manual can be downloaded from meta-essentials.
