Inhibiting Factors to Accessing Tetfund IBR Grant by Lecturers in School of Business Studies in the Nigerian Polytechnics (Published)
The study specifically examined the level of awareness, flow of communication, staff attitude and conditions for publications as they affect access to IBR grants. The population of the study was made up of all academic staff in the School of business studies in all the Polytechnics in the six states of South west geo-political zone of Nigeria. Convenience sampling was used to select 40 academic staff members and questionnaire was administered using quota sampling technique. Correlation coefficient technique was used to test hypotheses at 5% significant level. Findings revealed that all the variables examined were significantly related to access of academic staff in School of Business to Internally Based Research (IBR) grant in Nigeria Polytechnics. In conclusion the level of awareness on arrival of IBR grants as well as flow of communication within various polytechnics is inadequate and its disbursements is not enough to encourage academic staff towards robust research.
