The evaluation of the informative sources is essential to measure the quality of the journalistic work, especially in scientific communication, which requires a deepening in one of the knowledge plots. Health, Science and Technology are the sections in which we are going to analyze in detail how the number, characteristics, origin, and initiative of the sources affect the journalistic quality and the professional rigor of scientific production. This article presents the results of an empiric study about the news published in five newspapers and five new mass media, in order to analyze the quality of scientific communication in the Internet age. In conclusion, new tools, techniques and methodologies contribute to create a more rigorous scientific communication, in which qualified sources predominate and where the contextualization of the information added value to it, however, it’s observed, especially in new mass media, that Science magazines occupy a prominent place within the sources, which leads to a certain uniformity and homogenization of the contents, as well as a certain laxity on the part of the newspapers in their commitment to specialized profiles ​
