A journal has several related meanings:
*A daily record of events or business; a private journal is usually
referred to as a diary.
* A newspaper or other periodical, in the literal sense of one published each
* Many publications issued at stated intervals, such as magazines, or scholarly
pacific journals, academic journals, or the record of the transactions of a
society, are often called journals. Although journal is sometimes used as a
synonym for "magazine", in academic use, a journal refers to a serious,
scholarly publication, most often peer-reviewed. A non-scholarly magazine
written for an educated audience about an industry or an area of professional
activity is usually called a professional magazine.
The word "journalist" for one whose business is writing for the public press has
been in use since the end of the 17th century.
