Open access movement has given potential strength to the academic community by providing free and open access to scholarly communication. The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) is a platform that provides access to millions of articles on various subjects from across the world. In the present paper, the authors have analysed the contribution from The Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) countries during 2002-2019. The authors have analysed geographical distribution, cumulative growth, discipline wise distribution, DOAJ seal, Article processing charges (APC), domains, peer reviews, language-wise distribution, formats, frequency of the journals, etc. The present study found that India has contributed the highest number of journals among the BIMSTEC countries, and the highest number of journals were contributed in the field of Medicine.
