About

During this How to Conduct a Meta-Analysis Using Open-Science Software course at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, students will learn how to formulate a problem and analyze it conducting a meta-analysis in JASP, an open-science software. 

Overview

We are looking forward to welcoming you to VU Amsterdam Summer School online this year! Previous students exclaimed finding our summer school absolutely wonderful, interesting and fun yet also tremendously helpful for their professional and academic careers.

During this How to Conduct a Meta-Analysis Using Open-Science Software course at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam will practice a wide-and-far literature search and will learn how to report their findings following the PRISMA standards. 

Students will learn the basics of how to prepare and describe a meta-analytical study in a separate article. They will see how to apply this technique to summarise studies found in a manuscript in order to improve the cohesion and “publishability.”

Objectives

Upon completion of the How to Conduct a Meta-Analysis Using Open-Science Software course at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the student should be able to:

  • Formulate a research question to conduct a meta-analysis
  • Carry out a literature search far and wide
  • Systematically review relevant literature
  • Code studies fitting inclusion criteria
  • Meta-analyze the coded effects using JASP software
  • Interpret and report the meta-analytic results

Programme Structure

There will be discussions on the following topics:

  • Two types of systematic reviews
  • Open science and meta-analysis: multisite replications
  • Pros and cons of meta-analysis
  • Publication bias and quality of publications
  • Effect size and how to calculate it
  • Literature search, exclusion, inclusion, and coding
  • Heterogeneity and its consequences
  • Available software, including JASP
  • Fixed- and random-effects model
  • Estimating overall effect size
  • Analysis of moderators

Audience

This course is for Advanced Bachelor’s and Master’s students. However, enthusiastic PhD candidates and professionals interested in the application of quantitative data analysis are also very welcome to register for this summer course. This course takes inspiration from the disciplines of economics and business studies, as well as social and behavioral sciences.
