In addition, the relationships between the syndrome offaculty burnout and its potential consequences organisationalcommitment and recent research performance are explored. The study isconducted using a sample of faculty members from 40 research universitydepartments, ten each in physics, sociology, electrical engineering, andeducation. The major findings are support indicators are the mostinfluential determinants of emotional exhaustion in physics and theleast influential in sociology and education the same supportindicators have the maximal explanatory power with regard to personalaccomplishment in physics, and the minimal explanatory power ineducation emotional exhaustion is related strongly to commitment andrecent published articles in hard sciences, whereas the samerelationships are quite weak for the soft sciences and personalaccomplishment is positively related to commitment in all fields whileit is related strongly to recent published articles in hard sciences.The implications of this study are discussed.
