Résumé : This chapter aims to unveil how context may have an impact on academic production in political science, especially in quantitative research. The consequences of context sensitivity on this type of research are examined and three different types of biases are put forward: selection, specification and publication biases. In order to check for the existence of these biases, findings concerning economic voting theory and published in the journal Electoral Studies since 1984 are examined.
