Phys.org 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]

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