Meta-Analyses Want YOU !

Meta-analyses are an important way of compiling our knowledge.  They help us find true effect sizes and moderators and mediators.  But meta-analyses that consist only of published results may be very biased.  We need a way to make sure that people conducting meta-analyses can find the studies in other people’s file drawers — however those studies turned out.  If you are conducting a meta-analysis, please contact this blog and I will post a notice of it.  (Or you can post a comment here.)

Note: Perspectives DOES publish meta-analyses but there is no guarantee that ones mentioned in this blog will be published in the journal.

Starting the list now (and then moving comments up here, too):

1. Meta-analysis on the effect of induced disgust on moral judgment.
Especially interested in studies in which disgust is induced by a manipulation that is separate from the moral judgment itself (e.g., through disgusting images, hypnosis, filthy environment).  Get in touch if you have any relevant data.

2. Meta-analysis on the effect of weight on judgment based on the effect found in the following article: Jostmann, N. B., Lakens, D., & Schubert, T. W. (2009). Weight as an embodiment of importance. Psychological Science, 20, 1169-1174. Studies have to involve randomisation, a weight manipulation and a judgment or choice.

3. Meta-analysis on the accuracy of emotion recognition in depression compared to controls using face stimuli. I would be interested if anyone has any unpublished data they could share or any suggested works for inclusion.
