Some databases also include full-text articles, which can stand-in for an
ejournal subscription as sort of an indirect way to subscribe to a journal. In
theory, the database has other uses and benefits of its own, unrelated to the
full-text journals included within it.

An e-journal susbcription is a direct purchase of the journal.
