Meta-Analysis of Economics Research Network

FAT-PETFunnel DiagramWelcome to the Meta-Analysis of Economics Research (MAER) Network. MAER-Net is an international network of scholars committed to improving economic science through meta-analysis. The purpose of our network is to serve as a clearinghouse for research in meta-analysis and economics and to improve the communication among scholars in this rapidly growing field.

We also welcome political scientists, medical researchers, sociologists and others who are interested in using and developing meta-analysis to improve science—especially those who wish to integrate non-experimental research in an objective and ‘scientific’ manner.

MASS—Meta-analysis Archive for the Social Sciences

Deakin university’s Lab for the Meta-Analysis of Research (DeLMAR) hosts a meta-data archive. We encourage all meta-analysts to make the data from their published research publically available. Contact Tom Stanley ( to post your meta-data. 

Reporting Guidelines:

At our 2012 MAER-Net Colloquium and afterwards, MAER-Net produced guidelines for the reporting of meta-analyses in economics, which we hope all will follow.
