Details

This function can be used to redo all or selected meta-analyses of a Cochrane Review.

Review Manager 5 (RevMan 5) is the current software used for preparing and maintaining Cochrane Reviews (https://training.cochrane.org/online-learning/core-software-cochrane-reviews/revman). In RevMan 5, subgroup analyses can be defined and data from a Cochrane review can be imported to R using the function read.rm5.

The R function metacr is called internally.
