The use of corporate management practices in higher education has led to spread of result-oriented practices to improve research productivity, including publication rewards and requirements. In this paper we stress the importance of input and process based approaches by examining the mediating role of research self-efficacy on the relationship between training & development practices and research productivity, and the moderating role of knowledge sharing climate. This empirical work provides a more complete understanding of how training & development practices may build research self-efficacy which in turn promotes faculty members' research productivity. Finally, we contribute to the emerging literature on the moderating effects of knowledge sharing climate.
