Faculties’ research has also been found to be associated with research related issues including research effectiveness. Research anxiety refers to the characteristics which a student perceives as discomforting, to the extent that productivity may be reduced. In the academic domain, research hasdemonstrated strong relationships among various dimensions of self-efficacy and anxiety. It was noted that fear and anxiety are often the causes of faculties’ ineffectiveness in the conduct of research and that some students also face considerable anxiety toward the dissertation process. Faculties’ attitude towards research is another very important construct examined in this work. Faculties’ attitude influences how they mentally approach research including all the work related to that research. A positive attitude enables them to solve the problem quickly whereas; a negative attitude hampers the efforts in research.
