The JPOR has a special section on subject-specific studies that is edited by Peter C. M. Molenaar - Pennsylvania State University, Philadelphia, USA. Subject-specific studies represent an important form of idiographic research which makes use of methodological advancements in both data collection (e.g., ecological momentary assessment) and data analysis (e.g., time series analyses), and may have important implications for the future development of psychological science.
