Research and publication is an inherent value at all institutions of higher education. Regardless of the motivation, faculty research fulfils a vital need for new knowledge generation. The purpose of the current study is to pilot test a survey instrument to evaluate factors that have an affect on faculty research at one public comprehensive four-year institution. The Business School in cooperation with the Office of Institutional Research created an instrument to track changes in faculty motivation and research involvement over time, with an emphasis on submissions and publications as effective outcomes. The survey instrument consists of scales measuring research integration (incorporating research into the teaching of students), networking with colleagues, and a detailed list of faculty research development activities. This report is a preliminary analysis of the first-year results.
