Databases are collections of references to journal articles from many journals, chapters in books, reviews, conference proceedings,reports & in some cases, dissertations & theses. Online databases are most useful for finding articles when you do not know in which journals articles are published. In many cases databases include the full text of articles.
Academic (or scholarly) articles are articles that have been peer-reviewed before they are published. This means that experts in the field of study will review and approve the article before the journal will publish it.Source
