This is a re-post of Dr. Jack Vevea email to the R packages mailing list
Greetings, R users!
I’m excited and pleased to announce that the weightr package was
released to CRAN today:
Our package provides a function for meta-analysts to implement the
Vevea and Hedges (1995) weight-function model for publication bias in
R and, by specifying an additional argument, to implement the modified
Vevea and Woods (2005) version as well. We were inspired by Wolfgang
Viechtbauer’s fantastic metafor package, and have formatted our output
The package also includes a function to launch the Shiny app that
implements both of these models locally. For anyone interested who
wants to preview the Shiny app without installing the package, it’s
available online here:
Thanks for your time, and I hope the package is useful to you! If you
encounter any problems or have feedback, please feel free to contact
me at [email protected].
