The coef function extracts the estimated model coefficients from objects of class "rma". For objects of class "summary.rma", the model coefficients, corresponding standard errors, test statistics, p-values, and confidence interval bounds are extracted.

# S3 method for rma
coef(object, …)

# S3 method for summary.rma
coef(object, …)



an object of class "rma" or "summary.rma".

other arguments.


Either a vector with the estimated model coefficient(s) or a data frame with the following elements:


estimated model coefficient(s).


corresponding standard error(s).


corresponding test statistic(s).


corresponding p-value(s).

corresponding lower bound of the confidence interval(s).


corresponding upper bound of the confidence interval(s).

When the model was fitted with the Knapp and Hartung (2003) method (i.e., test="knha" in the rma.uni function) or with test="t" in the rma.glmm and functions, then zval is called tval in the data frame that is returned by the function.
