RoBMA: Robust Bayesian Meta-Analyses

A framework for estimating ensembles of meta-analytic models (assuming either presence or absence of the effect, heterogeneity, and publication bias). The RoBMA framework uses Bayesian model-averaging to combine the competing meta-analytic models into a model ensemble, weights the posterior parameter distributions based on posterior model probabilities and uses Bayes factors to test for the presence or absence of the individual components (e.g., effect vs. no effect; Bartoš et al., 2021, <doi:10.31234/>; Maier, Bartoš & Wagenmakers, in press, <doi:10.31234/>). Users can define a wide range of non-informative or informative prior distributions for the effect size, heterogeneity, and publication bias components (including selection models and PET-PEESE). The package provides convenient functions for summary, visualizations, and fit diagnostics.
