An account is a value that enables like transactions to be aggregated - for4 example, sales is an account. A journal is a way of flagging the type of transactions - for example, a sales journal versus a bank journal. This way in your bank ACCOUNT you can see what transactions came from sales (as they were generated by a SALES JOURNAL) and those from bank. In OpenERP the journal may set default entries (e.g. the bank journal sets the bank account to be used for the bank posting).
