You would simply need to use the usual formula for the standard error of Fisher's transformation for the correlation coefficient (1/sqrt(n-3)), then use metan on the transformed correlations and their standard errors, then transform the summary estimate and 95% CI back to the original scale.

Best wishes

Hi:

Does anyone know of a Stata user-written ado file that does
meta-analysis with correlation coefficients as inputs (and not only
means and SDs)?

Thanks,
John.
