"Thank you for developing Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis. It is by far the best tool available for today’s meta‐analytic researcher. It provides flexibility for all possible types of data, it produces great colorful graphical displays, and the product support is unmatched! I have used a number of different programs for conducting meta‐analytic research over the last ten years, and CMA is the only product I recommend to my students and colleagues."

"CMA is a formidable tool for conducting sophisticated meta‐analyses in the domain of cognitive and behavioral sciences. As an early adapter of CMA I am still amazed about its flexibility in data storing, data processing, and its many options for validity checks of meta‐analytic outcomes such as trim‐and‐fill and other state‐of‐the‐art ways to test the influence of unpublished papers. The flexibility of CMA to exchange data with Excel, SPSS, and other statistical software is a major asset. I also taught courses on meta‐analysis with the student version of CMA available for the graduate students, and it has been a real success as CMA makes meta‐analysis transparent as well as motivating for students with a basic training in statistics."
