Research synthesis techniques such as systematic reviews and meta-analyses have become standard methods for aggregating the results from thematically related research in psychology. They can be used to describe the state of the art in a research field, to test and/or compare theories, and to derive conclusions about the effectiveness of interventions.
The overall aim of our research is to address hotspot topics in any subfield of psychology and related areas with the aid of research synthesis methods. Furthermore, we aim to further develop research synthesis methods. The topics covered include, but are not limited to:
