We study the spin magnetic dipole transitions in sd-shell even-even nuclei with N=Z and a p-shell nucleus 12C by modern shell model calculations. The shell model wave functions take into account enhanced isoscalar (IS) spin-triplet pairing as well as the effective spin operators. We point out that the IS pairing and the effective spin operators give a large quenching effect on the isovector (IV) spin transitions to be consistent with observed data by (p, p′) experiments. On the other hand, the observed IS spin strengths do not show large quenching effect suggested by the calculated investigation. The IS pairing gives a substantial quenching effect on the spin magnetic dipole transitions, especially on the IV ones.
