MIX comes in two flavors: Lite for those who want to learn or teach about meta-analysis and Professional for those who want to perform one on their own data. MIX has many unique features.
The structured approach to meta-analysis in which the numerical and graphical assessments are conveniently categorized in methods for exploration, synthesis, and evaluation is just one of them.
MIX Lite is a free software for use with Excel 2007 or later. It is meant for those wanting to learn or teach about meta-analysis. This is a fully functional version, except users cannot create or load custom datasets. MIX Lite contains 20 of the data sets used in the most authoritative books on meta-analysis and is ideal for use in educational environments.
