Both are means of producing and storing energy in form of ATP


In substrate level phosphorylation, a substrate decomposes and releases energy without the help of enzymes while in oxidative phosphorylation, a substrate is oxidised in presence of certain enzymes releasing energy.

In both the cases, the released energy is mostly stored in form pf ATP and both of these occur during krebs cycle and glycolysis
