The advancement in information technology has resulted in the interconnection between economic, social, cultural and political aspects of the society through a wide variety of ways for knowledge dissemination. This has transformed the world to knowledge-based society where people from all corners of the globe can get access to knowledge and information easily. With such factor, research is considered as the key to the development of knowledge and has eventually become one major mission of higher education institutions worldwide. As a consequence, most higher education institutions place high importance on research and try to promote their staff to do it simultaneously with maintaining quality instruction. Therefore, research has become a key indicator of the quality of higher education institutions.
