This sociological review occasionally publishes articles dealing with communication, from a sociological perspective.

  • Alcalde Villacampa, J. (2003). Medios de comunicación como intermediarios del voto: la influencia de TV1 y Antena 3 en las elecciones legislativas de 1993. REIS, 104(3) (Octubre-Diciembre), 145-178. Examining the influence of two television channels on the 1993 Spanish national elections, this study looks at the interaction of three independent variables: "the variation in the aggregate level of the information contained in the elite discourse, the differences at the individual level on the attention to that discourse, and the differences on the ideological predisposition of the individuals" (p. 178). The study also includes a specific analysis of influence on undecided voters.

    • Mayntz, Renate. “Modelos cientificos, teoria sociologica y el problema macro-micro,” pp. 65-78. Mayntz analyzes and surveys the “the influence of impact magazines” in the various fields of science, taking the Spanish scene as the sample that can be used to generalize the scientific publication trends universally. He also examines the sources, the variety and preponderance of certain publications related to science and what influence they will exert on “the modification of the scientific model in experimental sciences.”
