The workplace, especially the academic department or division, provides an intriguing research site for study of correlates of scholarly performance. The objective of this study was to estimate a correlate model of three-year scholarly performance of clinical faculty in colleges of pharmacy. Two-hundred and ninety-six clinical faculty in pharmacy responded to an author-developed questionnaire. The scholarly performance items factored into three dimensions: "Refereed Research,", "Grants/Books Research," and "Nonresearch Scholarship." A fourth single-item variable, "Contracts," was also used as a dependent dimension. Eight correlates, including two related to the departmental workplace, emerged as factors significantly explaining the variation in scholarly performance. The two most significant were "Off-Campus Conversations" and "Department: Percent Time in Research." These results as well as others were contrasted with prior correlate studies and suggestions were made for future additional study.
