Kumari, Beena and Sahney, Sangeeta and Madhukar, Anuradha (2018) Factors Influencing Productivity of Researchers: A Study of Select Public Sector R&D Laboratories in India. International Journal of Global Business and Competitiveness, 13/1 . pp. 75-98.



The R&D spending as well as R&D performance of public sector or national R&D organizations or universities of Asian countries such as China, Japan, Singapore, Korea and Singapore have progressed much in comparison to the India. This indicates that for an improved performance, Indian public sector R&D organizations need to focus on the determinants that improve their R&D productivity. This study focuses upon the determinants of R&D productivity from dual perspective viz. a researchers’ perspective, and the research organizations’ perspective. This study attempts to outline significant factors that influence generation of R&D outputs such as Patents and Publications. The productivity data of five Indian public sector laboratories have been studied by utilizing correlation analysis and regression modeling to provide facts about the relationship between various aspects of R&D productivity viz. extent of man-days involvement, multitasking in core and non-core R&D jobs and the extent of R&D outputs generated.
