Title An analysis of architecture-related content in the Spanish digital press. The case of ABC.es in 2019 Summary This study has analysed architectural texts published in 2019 in the digital version of the newspaper ABC, which is ABC.es. The main objective of the research is to gain in-depth knowledge into the coverage of this content in one of the oldest national newspapers in Spain. The methodological technique used has been content analysis. The selected sample consists of 117 texts in the category of “Architecture” published between January and June of 2019, which have been analysed according to the following variables: the section of the website where the text is located, the journalistic genre, the type of architectural work or event addressed, the name of each author (specifying the professional profile of the most prolific writers), as well as the number of images, image galleries, and videos accompanying each text. The most enlightening results for gaining in-depth knowledge into the coverage of the content are those obtained from the analyses of the journalistic genre of the text and the type of architectural work. Among the conclusions, one that stands out is the scarce presence of architectural criticism in ABC.es. Keywords Cultural journalism; digital journalism; Architecture; architectural criticism; ABC.es
