Advanced Statistical Methods to Model and Adjust for Bias in Meta-Analysis

The following methods are implemented to evaluate how sensitive the results of a meta-analysis are to potential bias in meta-analysis and to support Schwarzer et al. (2015) <DOI:10.1007/978-3-319-21416-0>, Chapter 5 "Small-Study Effects in Meta-Analysis": - Copas selection model described in Copas & Shi (2001) <DOI:10.1177/096228020101000402>; - limit meta-analysis by Rücker et al. (2011) <DOI:10.1093/biostatistics/kxq046>; - upper bound for outcome reporting bias by Copas & Jackson (2004) <DOI:10.1111/j.0006-341X.2004.00161.x>.
