Meta-analytic structural equation modeling (MASEM) refers to fitting structural equation models (SEMs) (such as path models or factor models) to meta-analytic data. Currently, fitting MASEMs may be challenging for researchers that are not accustomed to working with R software and packages. In solution, there is webMASEM; a web application for MASEM. This app implements the one-stage MASEM approach, and allows users to apply MASEM in a user-friendly way.
Meta-analyses are predicated on the assumption of independence of primary effect sizes, which might be routinely violated in the organizational sciences. In HubMeta, we get around this by routinely creating composite scores to ensure independence. As an alternative, meta-analysis could be cast as a multilevel, variance known (Vknown) model to account for such dependency in primary studies’ effect sizes.
Meta-Sen is a cloud-based, open access software that allows users to upload a meta-analytic dataset and provides as output all essential meta-analytic results and sensitivity analysis results.

Treating all moderators as independent, it helps determine the range of results your meta-analytic matrix could generate.

You can run this with a matrix, so makes a nice addition to any MASEM analysis.
A very interesting addition to the publication bias toolkit. Ulrich Schimmack found some really interesting properties by converting P-Curves to the inverse normal distribution. It can reveal bias where the p-curve can’t.
As an alternative to discrete-time or cross-lagged meta-analyses, some are suggesting continuous time solutions. The first of these two deals with repeated measures and the second deals with between studies.
