[Objective] We try to predict the future trends of Meta-analysis methodology, and improve the performance of domain knowledge discovery tasks. [Methods] First, we reviewed the features of popular Meta-analysis software, as well as their differences in computing and graphics functions. Second, we designed a Meta-analysis tool for the resources and environment science. [Results] We developed a new concept for public oriented Meta-synthesis tool with standardized interface, simplified procedure and accurate results. [Limitations] We did not examine the feasibility of the new tool on a working platform, The inherent weaknesses of Meta-analysis cannot be avoided in the domain knowledge discovery. [Conclusions] We need to build a platform for the domain knowledge discovery with Meta-analysis technology and then expand its application in literature discovery.

Key wordsMeta-analysis      Knowledge discovery      Software comparison      Resources and environment science
