Difference between wikiprojects and portals?

What is the difference and preference for portals as opposed to wiki projects?

  • WikiProjects are for editors to discuss article editing. WikiProjects are linked in talk pages with WikiProject banners like {{WikiProject Politics}} for example, but not in articles.
  • Portals are mainly for readers and can be linked in articles with {{Portal}} in an article's See also section.

There may or may not be a WikiProject and a portal for the same subject.
