The metapsyTools package facilitates the calculation of effect sizes and meta-analyses based on the Metapsy database (or databases adhering to the same format).

Databases that are loaded into R using the metapsyData package can automatically be analyzed using the analysis module of the package.


Usage Example

# Load metapsyData
library(metapsyData)

# Load database, filter trials, and analyze
getData("depression-inpatients") %>% 
    filterPoolingData(
      condition_arm1 == "cbt",
      instrument == "bdi") %>% 
    runMetaAnalysis()

The metapsyTools package lives in a GitHub repository. It can be downloaded using the code below:
