Dear Colleagues,

We are conducting a meta-analysis on the effects of power poses and upright vs. slumped body postures. In addition to published studies, we are hoping to include dissertations and other theses, unpublished manuscripts/preprints, conference presentations, and work currently in revision or press.

We would love to include all relevant studies approximately matching our inclusion criteria:

- Experimental design
- Bodily manipulation: power posing (see Carney, Cuddy, & Yap, 2010, for prototypical intervention) or upright vs. slumped postures (see Riskind & Gotay, 1982, for prototypical intervention)
- Measurement of any kind of self-reported, behavioral, or physiological variables as DVs

To submit your work, please use our submission portal:

or forward an e-mail to Please let us know your:
(a) sample size per group;
(b) your dependent variables;
(c) your bodily manipulation (power poses or upright/slumped postures or related manipulation);
(d) relevant effect sizes for comparisons between groups (e.g., high power posing vs. control group) OR access to the raw data (including some kind of codebook); and
(e) the reference for your work.

Once your study is received, we may ask follow-up questions regarding characteristics of your sample, experimental procedure, or other methodological factors. We will only use your data for the intended purpose of this meta-analysis.

Please reach out to us by March 31, 2021, to submit any relevant studies or to ask any questions about whether studies you have done meet our criteria.

Thank you for your time and for considering our request!

Best regards,
Robert Körner, Lukas Röseler, Astrid Schütz
University of Bamberg, Germany
