Dear mailing list members

A reviewer of a paper I have authored has requested to transform the beta
estimates of a meta-regression result into odds ratios. The analysis was
conducted with the metafor rma.mv function. Although I understand the point
of this suggestion, I have looked into several textbooks and review articles
and have not found anything in this regard.
Before I start searching for a code to do this, I would like to kindly ask
for opinions on this issue. And if it is reasonable to do so I would be
grateful to see a coding example.

Many thanks in advance,
Dirk Richter
