Abstract:

Objective: The contribution of Indian pharmacy research is unremarkable in the world. Hence, we aimed to determine the research involvement and research productivity of Indian pharmacy faculties. Methods: A questionnaire evaluating research involvement and research productivity of the faculties was developed, validated and sent to 7536 email addresses. The main question categories in the questionnaire were- demographics, journal related research activities, conference related research activities, opinions about research and others. Results: We received 295 responses with the response rate of 3.91%. The male: female ratio was 2.78. The important average values in the survey were- experience in teaching/research= 12.51 years, Time spent on research/related activities=131.56 min/day, Research based publications= 34.3, Patents received=0.90. Conclusion: Although our study generates huge ‘quantitative’ data, serious inputs are needed to improve the overall ‘quality’ of Indian pharmacy academic research. Further research is indeed required to strengthen the field.

Key words: Pharmacy Education, India, Pharmacy, Faculty research, Academic research, Research involvement.
