Paper Abstract / Summary:

The study sought to describe and interpret the predictors of research capability as to research management and research process of state higher education institutions in Region IV. Specifically, this study aimed

(1) to describe the significant influence of the following institutional research program factors such as research vision-mission, goals and objectives, policies and guidelines, agenda and priorities, structure, evaluation, network and linkage, and rewards, incentives, and recognition on research capability as to research management and research process of state higher education institutions in Region IV, Philippines,

(2) to determine the significant contribution of the following human resource factors such as gender, age, civil status, position, status of position, educational attainment, research experiences, length of service, leadership skills in research, training in research, research orientation, and attitudes and interest in research on research capability as to research management and research process of state higher education institutions in Region IV, Philippines,

(3) to describe the significant influence of the following material resource factors such as government funds (internal), foreign funds (external), research facilities and equipment, scholarly journals or research publications, information technology, and library facilities and holdings on research capability as to research management and research process of state higher education institutions in Region IV, Philippines, and

(4) to determine the status of research capability as to research management and research process of state higher education institutions in Region IV, Philippines. Data on the independent and dependent variables were collected using the survey questionnaires and guided interview questions. Qualitative analysis was done to obtain the descriptive profile of the independent and dependent variables. Quantitative analysis was used to crosscheck qualitative analysis using the descriptive statistics such as weighted mean, standard deviation, frequency counts, percentage, ranks, and inferential statistics such as T-test, stepwise multiple regression analysis and correlation among other standard tools.

Two groups of respondents from five (5) respondent schools were involved in the study. The informants involve 289 respondents including 67 administrators completely enumerated, and 222 faculty members chosen by stratified proportional random sampling. Findings on institutional research program factors revealed a high significant compliance on the standard; however, there is the need to strengthen the research networks and linkages, and improve the research rewards, incentives, and recognition (RIR) for the efforts in research. Results of findings on human resource factors reveal that predominant respondents are males, married, and belong to age of 35-41 for the faculty and 42-48 for administrators; that predominant faculty respondents are instructors, and the administrators are holding the positions as Deans, and Chairman/Department Head/Coordinators of research; that most of them only earned units in Masterate; and the factors that tend to strengthen the description on research culture are research experiences, leadership skills in research, and attitudes and personal interest in research.

Moreover, findings on materials resource factors reveal the need to improve and strengthen a) the system of funding research, b) availability of research facilities and research journals and publications, c) the library facilities, holdings and materials. However, information technology variable is significant in building research culture. Descriptive findings on research capability show the manifestations of positive research management and competence of administrators and faculty in processing research. Regression relationship analysis showed that research capability as to research management is dependent on variable position, training, and research experiences; and research process is influenced by leadership skills in research, personal interest and attitudes, educational attainment, length of service, training, and research facilities.
