As of September 2021, a fully revised and extended version of “Doing Meta-Analysis with R – A
Hands-On Guide” has been published with CRC Press/Chapman & Hall (Taylor & Francis). A
physical copy of the book can be purchased, for example, via the Routledge Online Shop.
Unfortunately, it is therefore not possible to provide an openly accessible PDF Version of the
guide on the Internet any longer.
We strongly believe that everyone should have access to academic publications, regardless of
their background or financial resources. Thus, we are very grateful that CRC allows us to
maintain a full online version of the guide, which you can find here. On this website, the entire
contents of book can be accessed for free. The online version even contains some additional
content which did not make it into the printed version.
You are still free to use and adapt contents of the book, for example for your own teaching. If
you need more or other material for yourself or your students, feel free to contact Mathias
We hope you are not too disappointed that the PDF ends here, and that you find reading the
guide useful, either in its printed form or on the web.
