The Ben-Gurion Research Institute for the Study of Israel and Zionism publishes two peer-reviewed
journals. The Hebrew language journal, Iyunim Bitkumat Israel (Studies in Israeli and Modern Jewish Society), published annually for the past 20 years, provides a platform for the examination of Israeli history and society from a variety of perspectives. In addition to the annual volume, Iyunim publishes thematic volumes on topics such as Zionism, the economy, and controversial Zionist leaders. Future volumes will focus on gender, music, and secularism versus traditionalism in the modern age. Notably, this journal features on the syllabi of all Israel studies courses in the country.

The Institute’s English-language journal, Israel Studies, has been published since 1996 and is the
leading international journal on Israel studies. In use around the world, it offers access to cuttingedge research on Israel. Israel Studies has been cosponsored by Brandeis University since 2006 and appears three times annually.

It presents multidisciplinary scholarship on Israeli history, politics, society, and culture. It is published three times a year. Each issue includes essays and documents on issues of broad interest reflecting diverse points of view. Temporal boundaries extend to the pre-state period, although emphasis is on the State of Israel. Due recognition is also given to events and phenomena in diaspora communities as they affect the Israeli State. In addition to articles, issues include documents and review essays of recent scholarly research on Israel.
