This present research, aimed to determine the occasions, which the academicians encountered during the academic research process and how these affect the research process, was prepared as a case study pattern among the qualitative research methods. 34 academicians, who were working in a university in Turkey, participated in the research. The data of the research were collected with a semi-structured protocol form. 10 open-ended research questions were included in the data collection tool to determine the difficulties that the academicians encountered during the research process. The data gathered during the research were analysed with the descriptive analysis. A thematic pattern was constituted with the data gathered with the responses to the each question stated in the protocol form and the number of the pre-service teachers stressed on these themes with their views was given in brackets. In order to reflect the opinions of the academicians, direct quotations were done from the expressions of these academicians. The responses of the academicians to the questions of the protocols were separately examined and coded by the researcher and an expert from the field and necessary arrangements were made. According to the results gathered from the research, during the research process, it was determined that the academicians had foreign language problems, difficulties in the data analysis process, problems in publishing their researches, time problems in their researches, problems in collaborative works with their colleagues and difficulties in reaching international resources.
