Abstract
Even though the utilization of graduate students are critical for carrying out research, the inclusion of graduate students has not been treated as important in existing literature on research productivity. Against this backdrop, this paper focuses on whether the procurement and the utilization of graduate students is important for their supervisors’ research productivity, as the procurement of more talented graduate students makes more researches conducted. According to the results, firstly, male researchers have more graduate students than females, and it is assumed that the impact of research funding factors which have focused on male researchers and the social tendency that males’ research output is more recognized are likely to be the reasons for the result. Secondly, capital-area researchers managed more graduate students. Thirdly, the number of graduate students is found to be an important factor which causes the significant differences in the researcher’s productivity. Based on these results, some policy implications with regard to supports for unprivileged researchers who are female, young, and located in non-capital area conditions are put forwarded. focuses on whether the procurement and the utilization of graduate students is important for their supervisors’ research productivity, as the procurement of more talented graduate students makes more researches conducted.
