Don M. Baridam, Letam Q. Don-Baridam


The objective of this study was to find out the influence colleague context and faculty size on scientific productivity among lecturers in Administrative Sciences. Data were obtained from 176 faculty members in Administrative Sciences drawn from 11 Universities in Quebec Canada. The result of our findings showed positive and significant relationship between contacts with colleagues on research matters and single, multiple authored articles in refereed journals and multiple authored chapters in books. There was positive though, no significant relationship between colleague context and total articles and total book production. The result also revealed that aside the positive and significant relationship between faculty size and the production of single authored chapters in books, all other publication production measures did not have any significant relationship with faculty size. Based on these findings, it was concluded that colleague context and faculty size are not very good predictors of publication production in the faculties of administrative sciences. The implications for this study along with some directions for further study are addressed,
