The study discusses the background of open access publications in India and throws light on various government and organizational initiatives promoting open access publications in the country. The study retrieved 22,32,811 publications of India indexed in Scopus in which only 2,90,152 (12.00%) publications were published in open access channels. The percentage of open access publications is found to be very less. All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi is identified as top contributing affiliation/institution with 7799(2.69%) publications, and University Grants Commission (UGC), New Delhi is the top funder with 6097(2.10%) publications. The study promises to be extremely useful for researchers who intend to publish their research in open access channels.
