Findings: The results indicate meaningful relationship between gender and research productivity (when the decision criterion equals 0.226 and test statistic equals 0.162), as well as the relationship between age and productivity of faculty members (decision criterion = 0.73 and test statistics = 0.62). The statistical relation exist between subject areas and research productivity (when the decision criterion equals 0/8 and test statistic equals 0.119), as well as the relationship between academic rank and productivity (decision criterion = 0/3 and test statistics = 0.5).
Conclusion: The results show that the women had higher number of scientific production only in basic sciences. Age had little impact on production levels, but degree and academic ranks had some impact on research productivity. Scientific productivity is correlated to the quality and rank of the university as well as faculties
