We present a systematic analysis of the quasielastic scaling functions computed within the relativistic mean field (RMF) theory and we propose an extension of the superscaling approach (SuSA) model based on these results. The main aim of this work is to develop a realistic and accurate phenomenological model (SuSAv2), which incorporates the different RMF effects in the longitudinal and transverse nuclear responses, as well as in the isovector and isoscalar channels. This provides a complete set of reference scaling functions to describe in a consistent way both (e,e′) processes and the neutrino/antineutrino-nucleus reactions in the quasielastic region. A comparison of the model predictions with electron and neutrino scattering data is presented.
