Where to present and publish ?

In today’s modern, technological and fast paced world, where internet has made everything accessible, it is also being manipulated by non-academic/ non-research professionals for their own benefits. Unfortunately, Educational Research is also being affected by such non-healthy activities and there is a dire need to address the following concerns:

1) Which conferences to present in and which journals to send work for publication?

2) What are the traits of quality conferences and journals?

3) How to avoid non-authentic conferences and journals?

In the light of above mentioned concerns and with the help of authentic examples, the talk aims to bring forth different ways and tactics to help the faculty/colleagues identify and discriminate between credible and untrustworthy conferences and research journals
