Open access has now entered in every aspect of our life. OA movement has been passed through many phases and in a very short time and it has seen many drastic changes. Not very long time has passed when the concept was not noticed by much scholastic group. Since then, no one could imagine to take it in its present shape. The paper covers not only the international but national contributions also in making of the OA movement successful. It has been tried to elaborate all aspects of open access development and starts its journey from the birth of the concept. It focuses on free and voluntary contributions of such stuff which makes the human life easier. The paper explores into the journey of not only e-journal/ebooks but the IRs and open courseware also. The stakeholders which have made or are making this technological (or somewhat social?) movement a success have also been acknowledged by the authors. However, authors have focused upon the resources which are openly accessible.
