In the last two decades, researchers have increasingly conducted meta-analyses in the information systems (IS) field. As such, we need to ensure that researchers conduct such analyses in a sound and accurate way, use appropriate and effective meta-analytic techniques, and produce reliable and valid results. Nevertheless, few papers on conducting a meta-analysis in the IS field exist. In this paper, we review and re-interpret the procedures, issues, and techniques in conducting a meta-analysis in the IS field. By doing so, we make important contributions to helping IS researchers expand their baseline knowledge of meta-analyses and, thus, more effectively design and conduct them in the future.
