Role of Doctoral Training Environments in Scholarly Productivity: Moderation From Sense of Belonging and Research Self-Efficacy

Sat, April 6, 4:10 to 5:40pm, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Floor: 800 Level, Hall G


This study investigates a path model of the associations among doctoral training experiences on biology Ph.D. students’ sense of belonging, research self-efficacy, and scholarly productivity. While research infrastructure positively influenced sense of belonging, scholarly encouragement positively influenced research self-efficacy. Department collegiality positively predicted both sense of belonging and research self-efficacy. Further, sense of belonging, but not research self-efficacy, influenced research productivity. The indirect effect of department collegiality on research productivity through sense of belonging was significant. A significant indirect path was also observed between research infrastructure and research productivity through sense of belonging. However, all indirect effects of the three environmental factors on research productivity through research self-efficacy were not significant. Implications for the findings were discussed.
