I'm searching about scientific journals which are oriented only about meta-analysis. I knew there were some but i can't find any both searching google and http://www.scimagojr.com/journalrank.php

Are there any journals oriented all about meta-analysis?

  • $\begingroup$ There are even meta-analyses of meta-analysis research studies, but they are quite hard to search since queries "meta-analysis of meta-analysis" in most cases returns garbage results. $\endgroup$ – Tim Feb 8 '16 at 12:44

    $\begingroup$ I usually stumbled across that type of works searching with the queries "meta-meta-analysis" or "meta-epidemiological study" but the second term is a bit less specific $\endgroup$ – GGA Feb 8 '16 at 12:53

    $\begingroup$ Yes, and it adequately leads to xkcd: xkcd.com/1447 :) $\endgroup$ – Tim Feb 8 '16 at 12:54
  • $\begingroup$ @GGA Do you mean: Journals that focus on methods for meta-analysis or journals that focus on publishing applied meta-analyses (usually with focus on a particular discipline)? $\endgroup$ – Wolfgang Feb 8 '16 at 14:57

One possibility is the journal Research Synthesis Methods


there is also an open access journal dedicated to systematic reviews


but it does not publish much on meta-analysis methods as far as I can see.

Of course medical statistics journals also publish occasionally in this field but they are not dedicated to it.
