Resumen

Las citas periodísticas de revistas, autores y artículos científicos se han utilizado avant la letre para estudiar el impacto de la ciencia en la prensa generalista y algunas características del periodismo científico. En este artículo se revisa el estado de la cuestión y se perfilan los conceptos de cita periodística e impacto mediático por analogía con los de cita científica e impacto científico, estableciendo sus similitudes y diferencias. Se analizan las posibilidades de investigación que ofrece el recuento de citas periodísticas y el desarrollo de indicadores del impacto mediático de la ciencia. El análisis de citas periodísticas presenta ventajas frente a las métricas alternativas o altmétricas, pues la prensa es el principal productor de noticias y ofrece un producto más consolidado y con un filtro profesional. También presenta limitaciones, principalmente por la falta de una base de datos de citas periodísticas de las revistas científicas en la prensa generalista internacional.
