The major purpose for publishing a meta-analysis is to establish the best parameter estimate for an effect size, the range of an effect size, and the moderating factors that explain the range in an effect size. If the relationship captured by that effect size represents a major new discovery, then the meta-analysis should be submitted to AMD. If the relationship is important for other reasons, then it might be more appropriate for another AOM journal. An exploratory test of the generalizability of a theoretical relationship across multiple contexts or samples could make an important contribution to understanding the boundary conditions of theories existing in the literature, and thus may be appropriate for AMD.
