using pictures out of papers for the project

Maybe anyone can help me,
I would like to scan in some pictures and diagrams from papers
to illustrate the html pages of my project. Do I have to ask for
permission by the journal to do this? As far as I know, if you
want to publish that material, you have to have the permission
of the journal. Putting it on the web is kind of publishing?
Does anybody know, how that is regulated?

Thanks a lot,
