For this purpose, the data were collected from the master's and doctoral thesis carried out in Turkey. The aim of meta-analysis is to compare and combine the results of studies on a subject. 10 doctoral and 40 master’s theses between the years 2005-2018, meeting the inclusion criteria, were included in the study.
