For ANOVA one option is the partial eta squared \eta^2_p:


For multiple regression (continuous predictors) you might use the
standardized parameter estimate, the regression coefficient you obtain
standardizing the predictor: the larger the absolute value, the larger the
size of the effect.

You might take a look at:

S. Olejnik and J. Algina, (2003), Generalized eta and omega squared
statistics: measures of effect size for some common research designs,
Psychol Methods. 8(4):434-47.

and, if you have repeated measures:

R. Bakeman (2005), Recommended effect size statistics for repeated measures
designs, Behavior Research Methods, 37 (3), 379-384.
