Journal vs. Database

What is the difference between a database and a journal? 



-collection of articles.
-Academic/ Scholarly journals are written by and for researchers.  They contain footnotes/citations and a bibliography.
-Peer-Reviewed journals are academic/scholarly journals containing articles that have been reviewed by other subject experts in a formal peer -review process.


-collection of articles found in journals and newspapers.
-a database search allows you to search many journals at once.
-some databases contain the full-text of an article, others only contain citation information (eg. journal title, author)

There are times when you need to find an article in a specific journal (eg. The New England Journal of Medicine). So instead of searching across thousands of journals in a database, you can go straight to the journal you're looking for.
