Poor reproducibility has been linked to several factors, but one of the most pertinent issues is analytical flexibility. There are thousands of ways to analyse a typical dataset, but many articles only report the methods that yield statistically significant results, which support the reported hypotheses. Reporting hypotheses that are subject to flexible analysis as “pre-specified” without time-stamped evidence reduces study credibility, as these results are less likely to replicate. While the issue of analytical flexibility is becoming well-known for primary research, it has received less attention for meta-analysis. In this talk, I present two remedies for analytical flexibility in meta-analysis: pre-registration and multiverse analysis. Reducing analytical flexibility, in parallel with releasing raw data and analysis scripts, will improve the credibility of meta-analysis. </p>
