Purpose: In this research, we investigated the factors that affect the productivity of academic staff members in educational, research and administrative scopes.
Methodology: For this purpose, a questionnaire was designed and then was distributed among 167 academic staff members of five national universities in Tehran. Based on the data obtained from the questionnaires, we identified the factors that affect the productivity of the academic staff members by using the exploratory factor analysis method. Subsequently, by applying the linear regression method, we estimated the impact rate of each factor.
Findings: According to the result, the six key factors affecting the productivity of the academic staff members are education and the educational system, accountability and professional ethics, political behavior, motivational factors, the availability of facilities and opportunities for growth, and the university presidents’ high expectations.
