ZPID Presents Itself with a Meta-Analysis Focus at GOR20

ZPID is represented with various contributions at General Online Research 2020 and supports the conference as a sponsor. This year GOR will take place as a virtual conference only.

ZPID is working on building a platform to enable replication and augmentation of meta-analyses, PsychOpen CAMA. "The original meta-analysis can then be reproduced and modified online," says Tanja Burgard, research assistant in the research synthesis unit at ZPID. "The scientific community can also expand and curate meta-analyses so that the evidence remains up-to-date and existing data can continue to be used in meaningful ways." The application is currently being developed and shall be available in 2021.

Tanja Burgard will explain details about the service in her poster presentation "Reproducible and dynamic meta-analyses with PsychOpen CAMA". The poster is freely available in ZPID's repository PsychArchives: http://dx.doi.org/10.23668/psycharchives.3455.

Burgard will present a meta-analysis herself in the talk "Moderators of response rates in psychological online surveys over time. A meta-analysis". The effects of study design characteristics on the willingness to take part in psychological online surveys are investigated over time. The slides of the presentation are also available in PsychArchives, http://dx.doi.org/10.23668/psycharchives.3456.

An overview of what ZPID offers researchers is explained by director Prof. Dr. Michael Bosnjak in a short video: Link to the video. The institute supports the GOR as a sponsor.

The organizers of GOR are the German Society for Online Research e. V. (DGOF) and this year HTW Berlin - University of Applied Sciences. The aim of the conference is to discuss current developments in online research as well as best practices for industry and academia.
