    Article - En anglais

    Meta-analysis is essential for obtaining reproducible summaries of study results and valuable for discovering patterns among study results.

    A good meta-analysis will highlight and delineate the subjective components of these processes and vigorously search for sources of heterogeneity.

    Unfortunately, these objectives are not always met by common techniques.

    For example, a scatterplot is an objective summarization if the data are uncensored, but inferred patterns should be regarded as subjective recognitions of the analyst, not objective data properties.
