About psychmeta

The psychmeta package provides tools for computing bare-bones and psychometric meta-analyses and for generating psychometric data for use in meta-analysis simulations. Currently, the package supports bare-bones, individual-correction, and artifact-distribution methods for meta-analyzing correlations and d values. Please refer to the overview tutorial vignette for an introduction to psychmeta’s functions and workflows.

psychmeta is hosted on both CRAN and GitHub. Documentation for psychmeta’s functions is available in the package’s PDF manual.
