Faculty Research Intentions: The Influence of Attitudes, Social Norms, Habit and Research Barriers

Auther : Omar Khalil

Aim of the Paper: The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of a number of individual and institutional factors on faculty members' research intentions.

Study Design: This study adopted the survey method in one specific academic environment, Kuwait University. It built and tested a Theory of Reasoned Action extended model to examine the influence of research barriers, habit, social norms, and attitudes on research intentions.
Sample and Data: A data set was collected from 261 faculty members working in six academic disciplines. A structural equation modeling technique was used to test the research hypotheses.
Results: Attitudes and social norms were the most influential predictors of research intentions followed by habit, engaging in research-impeding activities, lack of extrinsic motivators, and lack of research resources. Collectively, these antecedents explained 60% of the variances in faculty’s research intentions.
Conclusion: This study puts forward empirically based evidence that adds much needed nuance to the current discourse on research intention and productivity. It also informs policies and strategies that enhance research productivity in academia.
