Abstract: A content analysis was made of newspaper articles in Japanese general newspapers and in English ones published in the US, on the same scientific research, to verify the difference between them. Three Japanese articles and three in the US were compared to show that Japanese articles are relatively short and are much the same in terms of the contents involved. Articles in the US, in contrast, do not resemble one another and elaborate on far more various stories such as the effort of the scientists involved and the history of the research field. Japanese newspapers have an inclination to focus on the minimum necessary information. These results suggest that, though Japanese newspapers have some advantages in their own ways, there should be some room for consideration to improve their quality to meet the demand of readers who are not necessarily satisfied with Japanese scientific articles as they are.
