Multilevel Multivariate Meta-Analysis With Application to Choice Overload

Contemporary psychological research can be dizzying in its complexity, and this complexity results in patterns of variation and covariation among the observations from a set of studies that requires careful treatment in meta-analysis. For example, individual studies in a given domain can vary considerably in terms of their dependent measures and moderators; examine multiple conditions that result from the experimental manipulation of those moderators and give rise to multiple dependent effects of interest (e.g., simple effects and interaction effects); employ a mix of study designs (e.g., unmoderated versus moderated, between-subjects versus within-subjects, univariate versus multivariate); and feature different contexts, treatment manipulations, and measurement scales. Further, individual papers feature multiple studies that, while different, are quite similar particularly in comparison to studies featured in other papers.
