check_setup prints summary of "RoBMA" ensemble implied by the specified prior distributions. It is useful for checking the ensemble configuration prior to fitting all of the models.

Arguments

model_type

string specifying the RoBMA ensemble. Defaults to NULL. The other options are "PSMA", "PP", and "2w" which override settings passed to the priors_effect, priors_heterogeneity, priors_effect, priors_effect_null, priors_heterogeneity_null, priors_bias_null, and priors_effect. See details for more information about the different model types.

priors_effect

list of prior distributions for the effect size (mu) parameter that will be treated as belonging to the alternative hypothesis. Defaults to a standard normal distribution prior(distribution = "normal", parameters = list(mean = 0, sd = 1)).

priors_heterogeneity

list of prior distributions for the heterogeneity tau parameter that will be treated as belonging to the alternative hypothesis. Defaults to prior(distribution = "invgamma", parameters = list(shape = 1, scale = .15)) that is based on heterogeneities estimates from psychology (van Erp et al. 2017) .

priors_bias

list of prior distributions for the publication bias adjustment component that will be treated as belonging to the alternative hypothesis. Defaults to list( prior_weightfunction(distribution = "two.sided", parameters = list(alpha = c(1, 1), steps = c(0.05)), prior_weights = 1/12), prior_weightfunction(distribution = "two.sided", parameters = list(alpha = c(1, 1, 1), steps = c(0.05, 0.10)), prior_weights = 1/12), prior_weightfunction(distribution = "one.sided", parameters = list(alpha = c(1, 1), steps = c(0.05)), prior_weights = 1/12), prior_weightfunction(distribution = "one.sided", parameters = list(alpha = c(1, 1, 1), steps = c(0.025, 0.05)), prior_weights = 1/12), prior_weightfunction(distribution = "one.sided", parameters = list(alpha = c(1, 1, 1), steps = c(0.05, 0.5)), prior_weights = 1/12), prior_weightfunction(distribution = "one.sided", parameters = list(alpha = c(1, 1, 1, 1), steps = c(0.025, 0.05, 0.5)), prior_weights = 1/12), prior_PET(distribution = "Cauchy", parameters = list(0,1), truncation = list(0, Inf), prior_weights = 1/4), prior_PEESE(distribution = "Cauchy", parameters = list(0,5), truncation = list(0, Inf), prior_weights = 1/4) ), corresponding to the RoBMA-PSMA model introduce by Bartoš et al. (2021) .

priors_effect_null

list of prior distributions for the effect size (mu) parameter that will be treated as belonging to the null hypothesis. Defaults to a point null hypotheses at zero, prior(distribution = "point", parameters = list(location = 0)).

priors_heterogeneity_null

list of prior distributions for the heterogeneity tau parameter that will be treated as belonging to the null hypothesis. Defaults to a point null hypotheses at zero (a fixed effect meta-analytic models), prior(distribution = "point", parameters = list(location = 0)).

priors_bias_null

list of prior weight functions for the omega parameter that will be treated as belonging to the null hypothesis. Defaults no publication bias adjustment, prior_none().

models

should the models' details be printed.

silent

do not print the results.

Value

check_setup invisibly returns list of summary tables.
