<meta name="DC.contributor.referee I" content="REPORT I: The article is interesting, since it presents a three-decade longitudinal analysis based on a representative sample of newspapers: El País and Abc, which are two of the most important Spanish newspapers.The theoretical framework is based on the main theories related to the setting of the media agenda and newsworthiness criteria. In addition, the article reviews the most recent scientific literature concerning the object of study, particularly studies published in indexed scientific journals.The structure of the article is coherent and wellarticulated. It responds to all the objectives and hypotheses. The method used is content analysis, which reduces the discussion raised in the conclusions to previously-made observations. The triangulation with other qualitative methods would enrich the contributions.However, we can see that this article is part of a wider research project that will surely complete this method and will reach broader conclusions in this sense.The research work is clearlypresented. Additionally, the figures and tables help to understand the different issues addressed in the analysis. Thus, its publication is recommended in RLCS. - Carmen Marta-Lazo, Ph.D. University of Zaragoza."/>

<meta name="DC.contributor.referee II" content="REPORT II: The originality of this article lies, firstly, in its ambitious approach: a sample of 800 front pages of two major Spanish newspapers. The originality also lies in the formulation of realistic hypotheses and correct methods, which in this case had to be content analysis. The use of tables to describe the researchhelps in the overall understanding of the article; while the bibliography is current and relevant, and includes the most important Spanish contributions in this field, as well as some necessary Anglo-Saxon references.In short, this study is deep,rigorous and is based on a broad sample, which is rare in the current communications research. It is important to note that this article could serve as a material of reference and study for professors and students of journalism.For all these reasons, I strongly recommend its publication.–José-Vicente García-Santamaría, Ph.D. Carlos III University of Madrid, UC3M."/>

<meta name="DC.description.abstract" content="ABSTRACT: The newspaper front page is a preferential media space where the journalistic selection and hierarchy are explicitly reflected. This article presents the results of a longitudinal study of the evolution of the Spanish media agenda, based on the analysis of two of the most important Spanish newspapers: El País and Abc, which have different editorial lines. The examination of these newspapers focuses on the identification of the main issues, actors, territories and degree of homogeneity of their main front-page news stories. The study of the evolution of the front-page agenda of these newspapers covered a three-decade period, from 1980 to 2010. A total of 800 news items were subjected to content analysis for this study. The results demonstrate, on the one hand, that there is a significant presence of issues and actors related to institutional policy and, on the other hand, that the Spanish press lacks an international perspective and is focused on national current affairs."/>
