This paper reports on factors that are related to academic publishing output. Academics from a large Australian regional university were surveyed and data from 143 staff members were used in bivariate and multivariate analyses. The results of these analyses showed that certain factors were significantly correlated with publishing output and that four factors, namely, confidence in writing refereed works, academic level, academic qualification, and external teaching load proportion, comprised the best set of predictors for such output. Moreover, this set of predictors collectively accounted for 28 per cent of the variance in the dependent measure. The implications of this study for current higher educational practice and future research are discussed.
