Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln



As research is ensconced with teaching at university level, this article engages with the research output of newly recruited faculty members at Haryana Agricultural University (HAU), Hisar (India). New faculty members were administered questionnaires during Orientation Program in 2019 at HAU. Aspects like total number of publications, documents in which published, authorship pattern etc. are presented in this article. In addition to these, sex and age group wise hypotheses also tested (with parametric tests). Attempt is also made to assess faculty satisfaction with publishing concerns (on a ten point scale with fifteen items). The new faculty showed magnificent research excellence with a total output nearing five hundred articles and many of these were indexed in reputed databases, including Thomson Reuters. Solo publications were quite less for journal articles but a little more than half had published as first author. Significant differences (with t-test and ANOVA) were not supported for null hypotheses. Publishing activity for writing reviews was less, especially books. Since literature on research output of newly recruited agricultural university faculty is scant, findings of this study may illuminate us in gaining an insight to this discipline.
