Influences of research and teaching nexus on academic satisfaction

The article exploring the teaching-research nexus and its effect on the satisfaction of academics in Croatia and Slovenia based on the data collected through a large-scale international comparative survey on Academic profession APIKS 1 was published in the Higher Education Forum and co-written by director of CMEPIUS, dr. Alenka Flander. The analysis was done on the academic satisfaction in regards to the academic behaviours (research and teaching time allocation), academic attitudes (teaching or research role orientation) and academic promotion (research and teaching role in faculty promotion and hiring). The findings showed that satisfaction is very dependent on the actual national and institutional internal and external factors of the academic environment, while current policy on promotion affects overall future of academic profession.
