As of 2010, MetaWin is being self-distributed.
MetaWin first published in 1997, allows the user to easily carry out all common
meta-analysis calculations on independent studies from a wide variety of disciplines,
including medicine, ecology, and the social sciences, compare mean effect sizes and
confidence limits of different classes of studies with the click of a mouse, and examine
the results of within- and between-group heterogeneity using parametric methods as well
as resampling tests. The program allows users to refine their analyses by choosing which
specific groups and individual studies from their data sets they wish to analyze or
eliminate. In addition, Version 2 of MetaWin allows users to calculate any of
six different effect sizes from their data, and can be used for a variety of statistical
meta-analytic models. MetaWin runs on IBM-compatible computers running Windows
95/98/NT/XP/Vista/Windows 7, with a minimum 8MB of RAM.
A comprehensive 128 page manual is included with the
program, which includes chapters describing the statistical theory of meta-analysis,
an explanation of effect sizes and meta-analytic summary model calculations, and a
description of how these calculations may be performed in MetaWin.
MetaWin is now distributed electronically. Cost for a single user is $60.
