An Introduction to Meta-Analytic techniques in Marketing and Management, Thursday 26 October 2017
Have you ever thought about running a meta-analysis but weren’t sure how to do one? Then this is the workshop for you! Using datasets from published papers and taught by people who have published meta-analyses in prestigious journals, this hands-on half-day workshop will introduce you to the basics of how to:
- Plan, conduct, and document a systematic search of the literature
- Extract the relevant data from the papers you find
- Convert the data you extract into the metrics required to conduct a meta-analysis
- Conduct a basic meta-analysis
- Test your data for basic problems of bias and heterogeneity
- Report your meta-analytic findings
Note: this workshop is targeted at those who have not had any experience conducting a meta-analysis. A workshop for more experienced meta-analysts will be run in early 2018. For members of the Deakin Community this workshop is free, for those outside Deakin the cost is $100.00.
Registration will be available from September 2017. For inquiries please contact the Centre Directors.
Workshop on Meta-Analysis and Research Synthesis, 14th February 2017
Presenters: T.D Stanley (Hendrix College) and Chris Doucouliagos (Deakin)
In the first half of the workshop, Professor Stanley discussed meta-analysis methods and the synthesis of empirical research. The methods were illustrated with an example of the marriage premium and the baby penalty; do men gain from marriage and women lose from having children? In the second half of the workshop Chris Doucouliagos provided hands-on research synthesis training using data on the impact of private and public health expenditure on life expectancy and mortality.
Meta-Analysis of Economics Research (MAER) Network
MAER-Net is an international network of scholars committed to improving economic science through meta-analysis. The purpose of our network is to serve as a clearinghouse for research in meta-analysis and economics and to improve the communication among scholars in this rapidly growing field.
DeLMAR will host the MAER-Net Colloquium 2018, October 4th to 6th, 2018. More details coming soon.
The Faculty of Business and Law will host the 2018 Meta-Analysis of Economics Research Network (MAER-Net) Colloquium from 4th to 6th October 2018. MAER-NET is an open international network of scholars committed to providing economic and social sciences through meta-analysis. We look forward to seeing you at Deakin! More details coming soon.
Tom Stanley gave an invited keynote lecture, “Meta-Analysis in the Social Science: An Introduction,’ at the “Frontiers of Transition Economics” conference at Kyoto University in Kyoto, Japan. The workshop was sponsored by the Kyoto Institute of Economic Research.
Tom Stanley also gave a meta-analysis seminar at the Institute of Economic Research at Hitotsubashi University in Tokyo.
Databases, publications, methods and working papers
The primary analytical tool used by DelMAR is meta-regression analysis, the statistical analysis of all relevant and comparable research on a specific scientific issue or, in other words, it is quantitative research synthesis. We seek to estimate genuine empirical effects, to understand research heterogeneity and to correct specification and selection biases endemic in economics and the social sciences.
