AbstractThis introduction is designed to orient the reader to the 11 articles that comprise this issue of PCSP. The theme of the articles is an exploration of the adjudicated case study method. The rationale for this approach is first outlined below. This is followed by a brief description of the three different types of adjudicated case study methods presented and illustrated by specific case studies in this issue. These include: Ronald B. Miller's "Panels of Psychological Inquiry" model; Arthur C. Bohart's "Research Jury Method"; and Robert Elliott's "Hermeneutic Single Case Design" model. This article series ends with a commentary by Susan Stephen and Robert Elliott on issues that cross cut the three models, with the implications of these issues for improving the overall adjudication method.
