Faculty Variables

The research listed above indicates that the following factors are, generally speaking, important here (although there are some national differences: Teodorescu, 2000):

• prestige of institution

• time allocated for research

• time spent on teaching

• number of graduate students

• number of teaching assistants

• number of colleagues

• support from head of the department

• support from university management

(professors usually publish more than lecturers);

(the higher the prestige of the institution, the higher the production rate); (the more the better); (the less the better); (need some but not too many); (helpful, if they work for you); (some needed, but not too many); (helpful, if not essential); and

(helpful, if not essential).
