In the presentation, in the form of class room seminar, topics of the research work which were presented are as follows: Rise of Predatory Publishing, Scholarly Publishing Models, problems that predatory publishing causes for science and society, criteria for determining predatory publishers, how to identify a bogus journal and find the right journal to publish our valuable work. The staff of the Engineering Department were the participants. The seminar, followed by fruitful discussions, motivated the participant staff to carry out research work and publish high quality articles in high impact factor genuine journals. The programme ended with appraisals on the presented seminar, along with requests for similar types, i.e. interdisciplinary programmes, in future.
