 Call for Unpublished Data

Dear Colleagues,

My colleagues and I at the University of Bucharest are conducting a meta-analysis on the association between goal interdependence and relationship satisfaction in couples.

To avoid publication bias and to counteract the file drawer problem, we are currently looking for unpublished or soon to be published data, including unpublished data from theses, conference papers, etc.

The studies should meet the following criteria:

*studies should include a measure of goal interdependence (goal support, goal conflict, goal congruence, goal interference, goal similarity, joint goals etc) between romantic partners;

*report interdependence in the context of romantic relationships;

*goals (no other types of variables, such as stressors) should be the target of partners’ support/interference/congruence;

*studies should specifically mention one goal (e.g., quit smoking) or general goals that participants pursue;

*studies should report data for the association between goal interdependence (i.e., goal support, goal conflict/interference, goal congruence) and relationship satisfaction;

*either a cross-sectional or longitudinal design should be used.

If you have conducted some relevant work in this context, or know of any unpublished work that might be relevant, we would greatly appreciate to hear about it and include it in our meta-analysis.

Please contact us with any potentially relevant work via email:

If you have any questions or would like to share your ideas and thoughts with us, it would be a pleasure to hear from you.


Ana Toma,
University of Bucharest
