Hi Reza,

Set 'mgp' before creating the plot:

par(mgp = c(2,.3,0))
forest(dat$yi, dat$vi)

Subject: [R-meta] Reducing space between the `xlab` and with the x-axis in a forestplot in metafor

Dear All,

Below, I'm trying to reduce the space between the xlab (titled: "Log Risk Ratio") and the x-axis (see picture below) in the forest plot generated by the metafor package in R with no success.
Is there any way to achieve this?

dat <- escalc(measure="RR", ai=tpos, bi=tneg, ci=cpos, di=cneg, data=dat.bcg)

forest(dat$yi, dat$vi, mgp = c(2, .3, 0)) # Tried setting `mgp` without success!

Future L2 researchers will be challenged not only on the basis of their substantive questions, but also on how they manage to answer those questions in a methodical manner.
