The present study investigates the extent of utilization of two meta tags – “keywords” and “descriptors” – in Web-based Open-Access Journals. A sample composed of 707 journals taken from DOAJ was used. These were analyzed on the account of utilization of the said meta tags. Findings demonstrated that these journals utilized “keywords” and “descriptors” meta-tags, 33.1% and 29.9% respectively. It was further demonstrated that among various subject classifications, “General Journals” had been the highest while “Mathematics and Statistics Journals” had the least utilization as “keywords” meta-tags. Moreover, “General Journals” and “Chemistry journals”, with 55.6% and 15.4% utilization respectively, had the highest and the lowest “descriptors” meta-tag usage rate. Based on our findings, and when compared against other similar research findings, there had been no significant growth experienced in utilization of these meta tags.
