Abstract


This paper aimed to compare Information and Communication Technology (ICT) (SPSS, AMOS, Turnitin, EndNote and NVivo) use with training versus ICT (SPSS, AMOS, Turnitin, EndNote and NVivo) use without training to increase the research productivity of university academics. The aim of this study was achieved by comparing models using ICT with training versus using ICT without training to increase the research productivity of university academics. This study was experimental, and the target population for the experiment consisted of academic staff from a university. The data was analysed using WarpPLS 4.0 software. The main results of this study is models, derived from the experiment, and the findings of the results will help universities to realise that ICT use with training has the potential to significantly increase research productivity of university academics.
