metaSEM: Meta-Analysis using Structural Equation Modeling

A collection of functions for conducting meta-analysis using a structural equation modeling (SEM) approach via the 'OpenMx' package. It also implements the two-stage SEM approach to conduct meta-analytic structural equation modeling on correlation and covariance matrices.
