The quenching of isovector spin matrix elements in s–d shell nuclei is well established experimentally as well as theoretically [1,2,3]. The isoscalar spin gyromagnetic ratios gsIS of nuclei with one nucleon or hole outside of LS closed shells are also quenched by the same mechanism. On the other hand, their isoscalar orbital gyromagnetic ratios gLIS are slightly enhanced by meson exchange currents [1,2]. Then we are interested very much in the following question: Are the isoscalar spin matrix elements generally quenched in s–d shell nuclei? We will try to answer this question in this paper.
