    Abstract

    It is unfortunate that in this country the need to separate the opinions of document examiners from those of graphologists has directed almost all handwriting research away from the areas of the behavioral sciences and toward the physical sciences. Because of this trend in research, little direct mention is normally made of the relationship of the behavioral sciences to document examination, although it is covertly mentioned in many papers. This attempt to pursue studies only in the pure sciences has placed a self-imposed limit of knowledge on document examination.
