There has been enormous growth in the publishing of scholarly journals, especially online e-journals. E-publishing has accelerated journal publishing, enhanced read coverage, 24x7 availability of the content and increased impact of the research output. Many of the e-journals are released under the open license popularly known as Open Access (OA) journals. The DOAJ is one of the most popular online directories that index scholarly open access journals. Based on the DOAJ data this study is focused on the observation and adoption of publishing best practices among the open access journals in the education discipline. The efforts have been made in the study to explore the level of openness, economic model, best practice and copyrights, licensing of the OA journals under study. Keywords Scholarly Journals, Open Access, Journal Evaluation, Open Access Journal.
