Meta-analysis—a statistical technique for combining and analyzing the results from 10 or 20 to hundreds of studies—has been practiced for decades, and in some fields, such as medicine, its use is routine. The principle behind it is that scientific debates, even small ones, are never resolved by a few experiments. Instead, the science is moved forward by analysing the results from many sources. Done right, meta-analysis is simply the most robust, objective means to conduct this process.
