Summary/Abstract: This study aims to offer a global image of the top Romanian Open Access journals. After the identification of the Romanian journals included in the most widely-used bibliometric databases (Web of Science and Scopus), some characteristics, such as their inclusion in DOAJ and/or ROAD, the use of Open Access licenses and the existence of processing/submission charges are analysed. The conclusions of this study offer a perspective on the Open Access movement and its influence on Romanian scientific publishers.
