When used in tandem, systematic reviews and meta-analysis-- two distinct but highly compatible approaches to research synthesis-- form a powerful, scientific approach to analyzing previous studies. But to see their full potential, a social work researcher must be versed in the foundational processes underlying them. This pocket guide to Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis illuminates precisely that practical groundwork.

In clear, step-by-step terms, the authors explain how to format topics, locate and screen studies, extract and assess data, pool effect sizes, determine bias, and interpret the results, showing readers how to combine reviewing and meta-analysis correctly and effectively. Each chapter contains vivid social work examples and concludes with a concise summary and notes on further reading, while the book's glossary and handy checklists and sample search and data extraction forms maximize the boo'ks usefulness.

Highlighting the concepts necessary to understand, critique, and conduct research synthesis, this brief and highly readable introduction is a terrific resource for students and researchers alike.

Jacqueline Corcoran is a Professor of Social Work at Florida State University. Vijayan Pillai is a Professor at the School of Social Work at the University of Texas at Arlington.

Review:


"[A] book that social work researchers, and even practitioners wishing to understand the process of systematic review, probably would not want to be without. It covers more than sufficient to act as a textbook for a doctoral class dealing with this subject and would enhance any program of study in social work at the graduate level."--Research on Social Work Practice
