2 Method 2.1 Study Design In this study, the effect of leadership on job satisfaction was tested with a meta- analysis design. 2.2 Review Strategy and Criteria for Inclusion/Exclusion To determine the research studies to include in the meta-analysis, the Science- Direct, Proquest and Ebsco academic databases were used to conduct a literature review. For this process, the terms leadership and job satisfaction included in the titles of the studies were used to screen the research studies. The end date for the research studies included in the research was identified as March 2014. Doctoral dissertations and peer-reviewed journals were included in the study. Many strategies were used to identify the research studies that were appropriate for the meta-analysis of the study. First, a research study pool (602 research studies) was established; it included all studies with leadership and job satisfaction in their titles. The abstracts of these studies were reviewed, and all were found to be appropriate to include in the study. In the second stage, all research studies in the pool were examined in detail. The results of the examination found that 318 of the research studies in the pool were appropriate, and 291 were not found to be suitable. The descriptive statistics of the 318 research studies included in the analysis are presented in Table 1 . The criteria for inclusion of the research studies in the analysis study were identified as follows: To have the statistical information necessary for correlational meta-analysis ( n and r, or R 2 values) To be a study measuring the correlation between leadership and job satisfaction Reasons for not including a research study in the meta-analysis: Having no quantitative data (qualitative research) Not having a correlation coefficient Not focusing on job satisfaction Not focusing on leadership 32 E.

2.3 Coding Process The coding process was essentially a data sorting process used to ascertain which data were clear and suitable for the study. In this scope, a coding form was developed before the statistical analysis was conducted, and the coding was conducted according to the form. The main aim was to develop a specific coding system that allowed the study to see the entirety of the research studies in general and that would not miss any characteristics of each individual research study. The coding form developed in the study was comprised of: References for the research Sample information Sample group/sector Leadership style/approach Data collection tool(s) Quantitative values 2.4 Statistical Processes The effect size acquired in meta-analysis is a standard measure value used in the determination of the strength and direction of the relationship in the study

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
