<meta name="DC.description.abstract" content="ABSTRACT:The interest in analyzing communication research in Spain has grown in the last decade, but there are still few studies that address the description of the objects of study and the methodological approaches. In the line of an earlier work addressing these issues for the period 1998-2007, the latest Spanish research in this field is analyzed by a content analysis of the papers published between 2008 and 2014 in five specialized journals: Anàlisi, Comunicación y Sociedad, Estudios sobre el Mensaje Periodístico, Revista Latina de Comunicación Social and Zer, journals that occupy prominent positions in the impact factors of the specialty in Spain. The sample design has been done choosing alternate years in the period studied (2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014), and the final corpus include 529 articles signed by authors working in Spanish universities and research centers. Those texts were codified by a coding sheet that includes five variables, four of them to account for the objects of study and three on methodological aspects. The results indicate that the recent Spanish research on communication takes the study of journalism and news as the preferred object, and it is specially interested in the analysis of media content, which accounts for 60% of contributions in this period. With regard to methodological approaches, Spanish researchers still do basically empirical studies, predominantly quantitative research, with a clear improvement in the methodological quality."/>
