List of Articles

Below is an (incomplete) list of articles that have used either the metafor package or the mima function as part of the analyses. Please contact Wolfgang Viechtbauer in case I have missed your article and you wouldn't mind having it included in this list (or in case you want your article removed from this list).

Note: I don't really update this list anymore (just takes too much time). As an alternative, you can see a list of the over 1000+ articles that have cited Viechtbauer (2010) on Google Scholar. That list misses publications that only mention using the metafor package (and do not explicitly cite the accompanying article), so it is also somewhat incomplete, but certainly better than the very incomplete list below.
