Parliamentary activity is far from being a neglected topic in political science: on the contrary, enough research exists to allow for the confrontation of concurrent hypotheses on the nature, the
functioning and the logics of what parliamentarians do. However, our review of that research reveals that it falls short of fully taking into account the qualification and quantification of newer legislative data sources, made available to researchers through digital technology and its implementation by parliamentary services. 

François Briatte and Olivier Rozenberg Biennial publish a Call for Papers on this topic on the Meeting of the French Political Science Association in Montpellier, France, from 10th to 12th July 2017 (Thematic Panel 38). See here for the Call for Papers.
