I have a number of studies I am looking at and trying to compare their correlation coefficients ... esentially do a meta-analysis of correlation coefficients. I have been using Practical Meta-analysis by Lipsey and Wilson, but have not made much progress. I've also found some online resources for effect size calculators to enter the r and sample size for each study. But after that I am stuck. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to run a meta-analysis of correlation coeficients? I am using SPSS or SAS.
