What is the goal of OpenSynthesis?

The goal of this project is simply to make it easier for researchers to find and use publicly available meta-analytic databases as part of research. There's already so much out there that can be used to:
  • Test new hypotheses or models
  • Assess new statistical methods with existing datasets
  • Update previously published meta-analyses
  • Conduct meta-meta-analyses (or meta-reviews)
  • Provide meta-analysis examples meta-analytic for pedogogical purposes

What is the scope of OpenSynthesis?

The scope of this project is to catalogue any and all open meta-analytic databases related to, generally, psychological sciences. The only firm requirement is that each database is a synthesis of multiple studies.

Who maintains OpenSynthesis?

This project is maintained by Matthew B. Jané with help from undergraduate lead, Deborah Kyerematen, and others in SHARP lab's quantitative team.
