Faculty Challenges and Barriers for Research and Publication in Tajik Higher Education
Kataeva, Zumrad; DeYoung, Alan J.
European Education, v50 n3 p249-265 2018
This article investigates the current state of faculty research activity within Tajik higher education institutions (HEIs), where the level of research productivity has substantially decreased in the past three decades. As part of a larger ethnographic study on professional lives of Tajik faculty members, we investigated and found enormous challenges to conducting research and becoming active researchers reported by our respondents. We analyze and discuss how such issues may challenge the development of higher education in the country.
