From 1999 to 2004 Science Media provided a subscription-based news service, an online database and networking services focused on innovation, commercialisation of research, and government policy.

In 2005 Science Media began providing daily email bulletins of links to announcements in the sciences, technology, innovation, education, environment, ICT and agriculture. This service shifted to a subscription model in 2006 and has an expanding client base across Australia and overseas.
