The goal of this proposal is to improve the information about scientific information in newspapers in Latin America. This will abolish the lack of data about the coverage of science and medicine in the newspapers of mayor countries in this region. To run this project, we propose to use the methodologies of "Informe Quiral", an annual study of five major newspapers published in Spain, and developed by Scientific Communication Observatory at the University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain. We want to present and discuss this project for the study of scientific news in the Latin American press with others journalists and researchers, and also, involve them in the proposed project by creating a network to develop this study, and to continue monitoring these sources of information on a long-term basis.
