One of the more important measures of a scholar’s research impact is the number of times that the scholar’s work is cited
by other researchers as a source of knowledge. This paper conducts a first of its kind examination on Israel’s academic economists
and economics departments, ranking them according to the number of citations on their work. It also provides a vista into
one of the primary reasons given by junior Israeli economists for an unparalleled brain drain from the country—discrepancies
between research impact and promotion. The type of examination carried out in this paper can now be easily replicated in other
fields and in other countries utilizing freely available citations data and compilation software that have been made readily
accessible in recent years.
Célkitűzés: A szubjektív jól-lét vizsgálata igen hasznos mutatója lehet a társadalomra jellemző életminőségnek. Az élettel való elégedettség az átfogó, szubjektív jól-létnek az értékelésére vonatkozik. Vizsgálatunkban arra törekedtünk, hogy ezt az érdekes kérdést Magyarországon a magyar és izraeli orvostanhallgatók körében vizsgáljuk meg. Korábbi felmérések azt mutatták, hogy Izraelben magasabb az élettel való elégedettség, mint Magyarországon. Módszerek: Az Élettel való elégedettség skála (Satisfaction with Life Scale) segítségével mértük, hogy az izraeli és a magyar orvostanhallgatók összességében mennyire elégedettek az életükkel; 300 orvostanhallgató töltötte ki ezt a kérdőívet, 150 magyar (75 nő és 75 férfi) és 150 izraeli (75 nő és 75 férfi). Az izraeli hallgatók átlagéletkora 24,98 (SD = 3,10) év volt, a magyar hallgatók átlagéletkora 20,89 (SD = 2,97). Eredmények: Eredményeink alátámasztják a már korábban végzett vizsgálatok eredményeit. Az izraeli orvostanhallgatóknál magasabb volt az élettel való elégedettség, mint a magyar mintánál. Az izraeli orvostanhallgató nők elégedettebbnek bizonyultak az életükkel, mint az izraeli orvostanhallgató férfiak. A magyar mintában nem találtunk nemi különbségeket az élettel való elégedettség tekintetében.
). Basis of the research This research was carried out in the framework of a larger research within the Hungarian community in Israel. The original aim was to identify and describe the appearance (and its forms) of the Hungarian language in the linguistic

This paper analyses the reasons, framework and trends of scientific cooperation between Israeli and foreign researchers for the period 1974–1983. The study used the ISI database purchased by the S. Neaman Institute, containing all Israeli publications for the above mentioned years. A complementary survey was carried out including a sample of two academic institutions. The survey database established on the basis of replies of 249 researchers who replied to the survey questionnaires includes data regarding 5,893 papers, 1550 of which had not been included in the ISI database. The findings show that about one third of the papers missing from the ISI database is due to the fact that authors did not note their permanent Israeli address under the paper's title. Other reasons for the partial coverage of the ISI database is that the ISI database does not cover all the professional journals and all types of scientific publications. The, survey points to an absolute increase of the actual bulk of the research performed by Israeli scientists abroad. Major differences were found between researchers among different departments as regards framework for research performed abroad, reasons and sources of funding. The main reason listed for foreign cooperation was that of true cooperation (50%) and this is a very positive phenomenon.

The aim of this study was to analyze the implementation of the eco-school initiative in Hungary and Israel based on the HRAS model. The quality criteria for ESD schools ( Breiting, Mayer, & Mogensen, 2005
Israeli is currently
one of the official languages of the State of Israel. It is a fusional
synthetic language, with non-concatenative discontinuous morphemes realised by
vowel infixation. This typological paper demonstrates that there is a clear
distinction in Israeli between direct and indirect speech. The indirect speech
report, which is a subset of complement clauses, is characterized by a shift in
person, spatial and temporal deixis. However, unlike in English, the verbs
usually do not undergo a tense shift. Israeli has various lexicalized direct
speech reports. By and large, Israeli reported speech constructions reflect
Yiddish and Standard Average European patterns, often enhancing a suitable
pre-existent Hebrew construction.
Blue sticky traps on 3.0 m high poles were used to determine the characteristics of
migratory flight in Israel from 2003 to 2007. In an open area, both thrips species were caught from March to November. The dominant species was
except during the spring. About 70% of the thrips were caught below 1.0 m above ground. Trapping height appears to reflect thrips’ concentration gradient in the air because it was not affected by setting up the poles over a sticky surface. From April to September the westerly sea breezes usually exceed 10 km/h from late morning to twilight time. As a result, about 85% and 10% of the thrips were caught in the morning and at dusk, respectively. When we used similar traps mounted on wind vanes, at 1.0 m above ground 70% of the thrips were caught on the leeward side. Thus, it appears that thrips fly mainly upwind during their migration. Indeed, while most prevailing winds are from the west, most thrips were caught on the eastern side of the poles (40–50%) and the fewest on the western side (10–20%). This information may be used to focus monitoring and control of these thrips in time and space.
The present paper dwells upon the subject and the conception of freedom in the novel Jerusalem (2005) written by the Russian-Israeli writer, poet and scholar Dennis Sobolev. According to this conception, the fragmentariness of the being serves as the foundation for the search for freedom. This search consists of renunciation of the world of absolute power. The renunciation enables apprehension of freedom as a possibility in the splits between the fragments of the being. In the novel, this search for the real order of freedom beyond the imagined chaos of history unfolds within the symbolic order of Jerusalem – the earthly, political, and mystical city, which is presented through the eyes of seven narrators in seven separate and united stories. Dennis Sobolev’s work thus reveals as a dissipative novel-myth about the disparate attempts to constitute the realistic and skeptical, and at the same time spiritual and playful, ontology.
