The relationship was explored by using Pearson r among variables of the study.
Main Findings: It was found that different components of institutional elements research procedure of departments, job and compensation, and assets and helping material have a poor, however positive correlation with research profitability of teaching personnel.
Applications of this study: The findings of the study are applicable in universities. The leadership may take steps for the improvement and promote research culture at a higher level.
Novelty/Originality of this study: Personal and institutional factors of research productivity were explored in this study. This study determines that how both types of elements are crucial and affect the research productivity of teachers.
