Thanks. My questions are: if I opt to use RevMan will it alter my computer program and library files or are there other steps I need to take to make sure RevMan won't interfere with my computer?
Also, I saw on one of the tutorial videos that RevMan uses R for the statistical analysis. I don't know if I can use R, since I don't have a computer background. I have no idea what that means so I was wondering if it's something I need to get?
I don't know anything about programming in R language. With that said, I am new to the world of meta-analysis, and this is an introduction in which I will be thankful for all the explanations. I only want to focus on the practicality and the skills required for masters, doctor, and the like in the field of meta-analysis. That is why I am using RevMan and not Stata, SAS or another software package.
Thanks! I really need to install it but my Internet connection is too unreliable at the moment. Is it possible to download a trial version that would allow me to take a peek at the features, and if not go ahead and download the full version?
My question is: I am looking for ways to draw, what the AMSTAR tool for example, and I found a post about a free alternative (the JBI2 tool) but the people of the post are using R (which I don't know). My question is, do I need R to start with meta-analysis? I am new to meta-analysis, and I would like to avoid to get into a new programming language just to draw a research article's funnel plot, which I have never before. Can you advise? Thanks. d2c66b5586
