This study was a secondary analysis of data from a study on educational needs of nursing faculty in Japan, and explored the factors related to research activities of nursing faculty in Japan. The conceptual framework of the study included 21 attributes of nursing faculty as independent variables, and their research activities as the dependent variables. In the original study, fifteen hundred and seventy-seven nursing faculty were asked by mail to complete two instruments. The first was the Faculty Attribute Questionnaire (FAQ) for examining the 21 attributes of nursing faculty. The content validity of FAQ was validated by a pilot study and a panel of experts. The second was the Educational Needs Assessment Tool for Nursing Faculty (FENAT), developed to measure the educational needs of nursing faculty. It has well established reliability and validity (Yamashita, 2004). The instrument packets were distributed to 1577 nursing faculty randomly sampled from baccalaureate programs, associate degree programs, and diploma programs in Japan, and the answers were returned by mail. The FENAT consisted of 6 subscales, and in the analysis of this study, data from a subscale for measuring research activities was focused on. The valid data were 821, and they were analyzed statistically. The results showed that 15 of the 21 attributes significantly related to the research activities of nursing faculty (p<0.05). A stepwise multiple regression analysis was conducted in order to identify the important factors for the research activities, and the result indicated that the research activities had strong relationship with 7 of these 15 attributes (adjusted R2=.542, F=94.495, p<.001). These included ?working at 4-year college or junior college? (Beta=.339, p<.001), having a higher academic degree? (Beta=.191,p<.001), ?having a research advisor? (Beta=.157, p<0.001). These results suggest that promoting continuous learning and obtaining academic degrees is important in improving the research activities of nursing faculty in Japan.
