This chapter first presents two figures to summarize the entire meta-analytic process. The first covers Part I, the initial stage of formulating a question and systematically searching the primary literature for suitable studies. The second covers Part II, the stage at which you extract data from publications, run statistical tests, and present and interpret your results. The two figures explicitly link each step to the relevant chapters. However, readers must be aware that the exact content of the activities in each box in the figures can vary considerably among meta-analyses. The remainder of the chapter provides a short description of what each step involves and tips based on the authors' personal experiences.

Keywords:   meta-analysis, meta-analytic process, data extraction, systematic search
