One of the main objectives of the IAA since the last decade has been the
necessity of communicating its scientific activity to the public, together
all the relevant information of general astrophysical interest that may reach
to the public.
A continuous collaboration with daily written press, in magazines of general
scientific spreading and specific to astronomical information, together with
the publication of especial editions and supplements, and the edition of our own
magazine “Information y Actualidad Astronomica”, conform a conspicuous presence
in the written media.
In this contribution we review the main activities that the IAA has carried out
in the recent years within the field of scientific communication in the written
press media, and present several of the new challenges that we have ahead.
