Abstract: The Open Access (OA) movement supports online access to scholarly publications, eliminates financial and legal restrictions, and supports the dissemination of knowledge. Open access is not a new concept for Indian researchers. Still, there is some gap in the open access movement in India. Open access journals are growing in India, but many are questionable publications, and researchers are sending their papers to such journals. Many times, researchers are not able to identify the correct journal for their paper publication. The major goal of this study is to evaluate the role of DOAJ in the corpus of knowledge made by scholarly publications published between 2003 and 2022. Worldwide recognized database DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) was analyzed for this research study. Open access publishing demonstrates how the world of knowledge is dynamic. India has significantly contributed to the growth of knowledge with its 326 open access journals. DOAJ ambassador and other OA advocates are also trying for promoting open access in India
