Publications using the Israel National Election Studies

The data of the Israel National Election Studies is available for use by interested scholars. Many have made use of these data and publications we are aware of are listed below. We request readers to inform the website of publications that might have been overlooked. After each election since 1969, a volume of Elections in Israel has been published (see the list below). These volumes have brought together leading social scientists from Israel and other countries; their state-of-the-art analyses of the Israeli national elections provided in-depth assessments of crucial developments in Israel's social and political life. The Table of Contents of each of these volumes can be accessed here.
