Critical linguistics has applied innovative research methods to the study of news discourse over the past three decades. The launching of the Spanish Internet service of the BBC poses interesting research questions as regards news production in Spanish by an English-speaking medium concerning the specificity of the service, the use of translated versions of BBCWorld English items, the strategies used in the production of the texts and the quality of the mediation. In this paper we shall use elements of Fairclough's model (1992, 1995a, 1995b, 2001) to analyse a corpus of 134 texts from BBCMundo and BBCWorld. In the introduction, two key concepts both in Translation Studies (TS) and critical linguistics will be discussed: the term translation itself and the role of text producers as mediators. In the subsequent three sections, we shall proceed to analyse the corpus. In the first one, we will attempt to find out whether we are faced with texts specifically conceived for a Spanish readership or whether this medium resorts to translating source texts from the English website. Secondly, we shall trace the existence of English source versions and compare them with the Spanish articles in order to evaluate the strategies used by text producers, and see whether the TTs result from translational or editorial processes. Finally, we shall discuss the quality of the mediating process and articulate an explanation for the existence of a Spanish service of the BBC within the context of modern-day media markets.

Abstract  

This paper analyses the scientific output and impact of 731 Ph.D. holders who were awarded their doctorate at Spanish universities between 1990 and 2002. The aim was to identify any differences in the amount of scientific output and the impact of publications, in terms of citations, according to gender. The analysis revealed no significant differences in the amount of scientific output between males and females. However, the proportion of female Ph.D. holders with no postdoctoral output was significantly higher than that of their male counterparts, and the median number of papers published after Ph.D. completion was also lower among women. As regards pre- and postdoctoral research, the data showed that early scientific output may be a good predictor of subsequent productivity in both gender groups. The results also indicated that articles by female Ph.D. holders were cited significantly more often, even when self-citations were excluded.

Abstract  

This essay analyses some aspects of the situation of scientific policy in Spain, mainly from a socio-economic point of view. The funds dedicated to R and D, its sources, evolution by years and distribution in relation with the GNP and different sectors such as public institutions and private enterprises are studied, as well as the relations of those funds with the inhabitants of the country and with the number of scientific researchers, the areas of research and the percentages dedicated to applied research and to development. In a similar way personnel engaged in R and D, their number, types of researchers, centers and scientific areas of research are presented.

Abstract  

This paper studies the main characteristics of the citation indexes currently developed in Spain. The paper compares the impact factors offered by Spanish citation indexes with the impact factor of Spanish journals also collected by the JCRs of the ISI (SCI and SSCI) over a five-year period (2001–2005). Spanish journals published in English have higher impact factor scores in the JCR databases of the ISI than in Spanish citation indexes.
