Comprehensive Meta-Analysis is a powerful computer program for meta-analysis. The program combines ease of use with a wide array of computational options and sophisticated graphics.
Researchers are more likely to publish a paper when that paper yields a relatively large treatment effect, and less likely to do so when the study yields a relatively small treatment effect. This can lead to a situation where the body of published studies is biased, in that it tends to exaggerate the true magnitude of the treatment effect. These issues are discussed in the book "Publication Bias in Meta-Analysis."
Publication Bias in Meta-Analysis: Prevention, Assessment and Adjustments
This book traces the history of the publication bias, explains how to assess the potential impact of bias in any given meta-analysis, and discusses mechanisms that are being adopted in hopes of minimizing the potential for bias in the future.
