Journal (magazine)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The journal / ʒʊrˈnaːl / ( French journal / ʒuʁ.nal / = newspaper, diary) is a journalistic product.

It originally differs from a magazine in that it is produced on a daily basis and usually contains the latest content. In Anglo-American usage, journal and magazine are often used synonymously, despite their different basic meanings. This usage has also spread in German-speaking countries, so that monthly journals are often referred to as journals. The understanding that a journal mainly provides up-to-date information has persisted.
