Abstract

 Background and aim: The present study was conducted to determine the factors associated with the RESEARCH ANXIETY among the faculties of KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION SCIENCE DEPARTMENTs of Iranian universities.Material and methods: The study sample consisted of all full-time faculties working in the KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION SCIENCE DEPARTMENTs of Iranian universities (181 individuals) in the academic year of 2013-2014. Among them, 139 participants had good cooperation in filling out the questionnaire. In this survey-analytical study, data were collected using Higgins-Kotrlik RESEARCH ANXIETY inventory. Data were analyzed using SPSS 20.Findings: The results showed that about 63% of the respondents had high anxiety level and the remaining (37%) had the moderate level of anxiety. The results of the correlation tests revealed that two predictor variables of TEACHING SKILLS and environmental factors had a negative significant relationship with the RESEARCH ANXIETY. The results of the regression analysis indicated that the components of these two variables could explain 38% of the variance of anxiety research.Conclusion: The findings illustrated that an anxiety can negatively affect the productivity of faculty members, leading to their slow improvement. It is clear that continuing such a situation may result in scientific recession in high education system; therefore, this system cannot continue to serve effectively its performance, namely, education and research in society.
