Abstract: Since the Judge-Advisor System (JAS) was proposed by Sniezek in 1995, it has attracted more and more research attention. Western psychologists have conducted a series of researches on the relationship between the Judge and the Advisors in JAS. Chinese scholars, however, paid little attention to JAS. The paper reviewed the literature that reported the paradigm, variables and the process model of JAS, and compared JAS with the group decision-making and team decision-making. Our analysis and discussion focus on the relationship among variables, trust mechanism, advice giving and the effects of task type. Finally, future research directions, such as cross-cultural role plays, are outlined.

Key words: judge-advisor system, process model, group decision making, team decision making
