Publication bias is a phenomenon that distorts and exaggerates the evidence to be compiled with a meta-analysis!
A systematic review with meta-analysis with considerable publication bias is a useless study.
In this seminar we discuss different manifestations of bias, as well as tools for its detection and correction.
The eventual inclusion of bias in size effect modelling is also addressed.
