weightr: Estimating Weight-Function Models for Publication Bias

Estimates the Vevea and Hedges (1995) <doi:10.1007/BF02294384> weight-function model. By specifying arguments, users can also estimate the modified model described in Vevea and Woods (2005) <doi:10.1037/1082-989X.10.4.428>, which may be more practical with small datasets. Users can also specify moderators to estimate a linear model. The package functionality allows users to easily extract the results of these analyses as R objects for other uses. In addition, the package includes a function to launch both models as a Shiny application. Although the Shiny application is also available online, this function allows users to launch it locally if they choose.
