Journals are similar to magazines as they are both published regularly (e.g. monthly).
Articles in journals are more in-depth and well-researched than magazine articles. They are written by experts and often report the author's research.
Many journal articles are only available online through journal databases.

Journal databases are huge, searchable, current indexes to journal articles. Many provide the full article and some include magazine and newspaper articles (e.g. ProQuest, Business Source Complete). Some only provide company information and financial data (e.g. Datamonitor 360, Bloomberg, Kompass, Singapore 1000).
