The Oxford English dictionary defines case study a “ n. (a) a process or record of research into the development of a particular person, group, or situation over a period of time; this as a method; (b) a particular instance or case that may be analyzed or used as an example to illustrate a thesis or principle."
Every academic field that engages in research may use the “case study” as a research method.
