Meta-analysis involves the use of quantitative procedures to integrate research findings across studies. Although it has been warmly embraced in those fields in which experiments are widely used, its application by accounting researchers is very limited. This research explores issues that are important to the conduct and evaluation of meta-analysis. The paper shows that meta-analysis has important advantages over traditional narrative reviews. The potential application of meta-analysis in research integration and theory development and testing is discussed. Opportunities for increasing use of meta-analysis in the future are investigated. Limitations and potential problems of meta-analysis are discussed to facilitate the evaluation of meta-analysis results.
