During the 1980s and 90s, the output of India's research was almost static while other countries grew rapidly, particularly in Asia. Even though India’s spending on research has quadrupled in the last 15 years, it still doesn’t match up to countries such as China and Brazil, who have been able to spend much more and faster to boost their research ability. The Indian government has made rigorous efforts to invest in education by creating facilities for education and research and specially focused on an international standard of scientific research and science education. In this context, the study has made an attempt to know the publishing practices of faculty members of Tumkur University. The study found that 76.4% of respondents were involved in publishing research and 70.6% were in research project. It also found that 52.3% of respondent preferred to publish their articles in National and International journals and 78.5% of respondents opined that they publish articles to improve their academic status.
