Research limitations/implications – The paper carries discussion about the methodology used in the paper, limitations of the research and recommendations for possible future research.
Originality/value – This is an empirical study of academia in a region of Pakistan with a sufficiently large sample that has not been carried out earlier. The study has importance for those at the helm of affairs and policy makers.
