Abstract

The purpose of this article is to provide insights into the issue of researcher "projection" within case study analyses. It is argued that a potential source of projection lies in the cognitive information processes of the researcher. A case study (written by the authors of this article) serves as a self-study to illustrate the projection potential in case analytic studies. Implications of projection in case analyses are discussed.
