R Packages

The following R packages available on the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN) are utilised in the book:


Note, version numbers of R packages printed above refer to those utilised in the book. These version numbers will change over time due to updates of R packages (which may for example affect the printout of R functions).

You can use the following R commands to install the latest version of these R packages:

pkgs <- c("mada", "meta", "metafor", "metasens", "mvmeta", "netmeta", "rmeta", "ellipse")
install.packages(pkgs, repos="")

The install.packages command uses a cloud mirror provided by RStudio (argument repos) which automatic redirects to a server close to your location. You could change this to the web-address of a CRAN mirror close to your localtion (visit for a list of mirrors).
