How large (physically) a journal? What dpi is used to make the pictures inside?

The best person to ask is your editor. Anyone else is going to be guessing their (perhaps irrational) requirements.

What camera do you currently use? What is your level of photography skills? How much control do you want over the camera? How large will the prints be? Please try to provide more information about you and the camera requirements.

Another thing to seriously consider is how you use flashes.

You'll want good flash abilities, that will rule out some cameras.

I'm not a journalist, but last month (or maybe 2 months ago) I remember another journalist asked the same question here and I believe he ended up getting a Panasonic FZ10 (4MP 12x optical zoom). But I guess it depends what kind of journalism you do.
