Higher education institutions in all countries recognize a research culture as one aspect that plays an important role to enhance research activities at the universities. Various efforts have been carried out by Makassar State University (UNM) to improve the level of research productivity. However, these efforts are difficult to achieve without the establishment and support from a strong research culture. Thus, a strategic framework is needed to build an actual research culture.
