thanks Tom, but I still want to know if the sample size will affect the results.
you see, the "meta" doesn't take into account the "n".

input n theta se_theta
18 4.37 1.0740
18 3.13 1.5602
20 3.51 1.8622
21 3.34 1.9122
18 4.25 .60029
end

meta theta se_theta
If you're worried whether larger studies have a greater impact on the analysis, yes they do. Sample size is accounted for in the s.e.
