Dear Wolfgang and colleagues,

A query as my collaborators and I finalize a paper that fits a multi-level
model using the rma.mv function (with thanks to this list for advice on a
post a few months ago):

Are there recent developments in research on sensitivity tests for this
type of nested data structure, including valid funnel plot and Egger's test
diagnostics? Our search yielded this post
2015 that suggested the answer is "no", and we haven't yet found any
more recent information on the topic. Advice is welcome - and if such tests
are not yet available, we'd be thankful for references to published sources
that note this.

With thanks,
