Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are valuable tools to explore research questions about the effectiveness of ABA interventions. Systematic reviews employ strategies to carefully cull the research literature to answer specific questions, whereas meta-analyses aggregate the effects of interventions across multiple studies. In this webinar, Dr. Tincani will overview the rationale and strategies for appraising and conducting systematic reviews and meta-analyses. Specifically, he will discuss the kinds of research questions appropriate for systematic reviews and meta-analyses, current best practices for extracting studies, and strategies for data aggregation and analysis, with a specific focus on single-case research. Issues related to preregistration, publication bias, and the pros and cons of various statistical methods will be explored.
