- Frank L. Schmidt - University of Iowa, Iowa City, USA
- John E. Hunter - Michigan State University, East Lansing, USA
Meta-analysis is arguably the most important methodological innovation in the last thirty-five years, due to its immense impact on the development of cumulative knowledge and professional practice. This text, now in its updated Third Edition, has been revised to cover the newest developments in meta-analysis methods, evaluation, correction, and more. This reader-friendly book is the definitive resource on meta-analysis.
“This text is the primary source text for psychometric meta-analysis methods…This is the only comprehensive resource available for researchers interested in conducting psychometric meta-analysis methods. Another strength of the text is the inclusion of substantive examples from the field of IO psychology, which always helps with student comprehension.”
“The key strength of the book is the complete and thorough coverage of psychometric meta-analysis. This technique is not covered in any other meta-analysis text, and is a major contribution to the literature…The meta-analysis field needs to find ways to integrate Hunter and Schmidt’s methods into current meta-analysis practice.”
“This is an important text…It is the only book that presents adequate coverage of psychometric meta-analysis…it is an invaluable resource for anyone involved in meta-analytic studies.”

A very comprehensive textbook that guides the student using a step-by-step approach.
