Dr Nikoloulopoulos's work on composite likelihood in bivariate meta-analysis appeared online in AStA

Dr Aristidis K. Nikoloulopoulos's work on composite likelihood in bivariate meta-analysis of diagnostic test accuracy studies appeared online in the AStA Advances in Statistical Analysis. AStA is the journal of the German Statistical Society and has impact factor 0.868. The article is entitled "On composite likelihood in bivariate meta-analysis of diagnostic test accuracy studies" and demonstrates that it is a digression to use composite likelihood estimation in meta-analysis of diagnostic test accuracy studies as apparently there is neither computationally difficulty in the calculation of the bivariate log-likelihood nor robustness in the misspecification of the marginal distribution of the random effects. The paper is also available at ArXiv e-prints arXiv:1611.05344 and UEA digital repository.
