"I've been using Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis (CMA) for about five years now and have found it to be the most user‐friendly program for conducting meta‐analyses. CMA allows researchers to conduct meta‐analyses on a wide array of data sets. Further, CMA includes an array of some of the most sophisticated publication bias analyses, allowing researchers to examine an issue that is too often overlooked in meta‐analysis. I would highly recommend CMA to any researcher conducting metaanalyses."

"Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis software is like a magic wand. The simple and clear interface (like an Excel sheet) will guide you to do complicated meta‐analysis within only a few clicks. The comprehensive formats included in the software allow researchers to input the data in various ways. It provides clear outputs and high‐resolution graphs which can be imported to Microsoft Word. I especially love the feature that shows you the calculation steps so you can check whether you’ve run it correctly. It also provides advanced sub‐group analysis, moderator analysis, meta‐regression, and publication‐bias analysis. This software is a lifesaver! Meta‐analysis becomes very easy with the help of Comprehensive Meta‐Analysis. I am sure I will use this software for upcoming meta‐analyses in the future."
