Description: This webinar will guide researchers on how to use information from the WWC website ( to obtain study-specific data that can be incorporated into a meta-analysis. The presentation will provide a general overview of the key steps in conducting a meta-analysis, and discuss how researchers can utilize WWC resources during nearly every step of the process. In particular, the webinar will discuss exporting study-specific details from the WWC individual studies database, including data such as effect sizes that may not be available in originally published reports. The presentation will also demonstrate how to extract information from WWC exportable files and conduct meta-analyses using R, a free and flexible statistical software package.
