Abstract

The goal of this study is to determine the most significant relationship between research intention commitment and environmental factors. Aside from that, the conceptual framework was created with the factors in mind. In order to measure data, the survey was performed as the instrument technique for data collecting in this study.

The questionnaire was personally handed to respondents in this study, with a concentration on academics who were eager to participate. The data reveal that there is a strong connection between commitment and environment factors when it comes to research intention. At the conclusion of this study, it is hoped that the findings would have a beneficial impact and benefit on the organisation. It is also hoped that this research will be valuable to future researchers who wish to investigate the same topic.
