Current status Online is a science, research and technology news aggregator where much of the content is republished directly from press releases and news agencies-in a practice known as churnalism.[1][2][3] It also produces some science journalism,[4][5] it shares many similarities with ScienceDaily and EurekAlert! in the sense that all of them practice heavy churnalism.

In April 2011 started the site Medical Xpress for its content about medicine and health.[6]
