Introduction: A faculty member in a medical university is infused with the responsibility to perform research. The majority of the faculties are inclined to conduct studies more in line with their specialty but less with regard to education, which is itself a major responsibility of them. Accordingly, this study examined the relationship between structural and managerial factors influencing the increase in educational research.

Methods: This is a descriptive, analytic study. The population included all the faculty members in Birjand University of Medical Sciences. Cochran formula was used to determine the sample size as 100 subjects who were selected by stratified random sampling method. To collect data, a 19-item researcher-made questionnaire was used, which had two subscales. Validity of the questionnaire was confirmed by experts, and its internal consistency was calculated as 81% by Cronbach's alpha. For data analysis, descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, and frequency) and inferential statistics (t single sample, independent t-test, and ANOVA) were used. The significant level was considered at 0.05.

Results: The results showed that, respectively, the University structural (4.24±1.42) and University managerial (3.89±0.835) correlated with increase in education-oriented research projects. The role of each of the influential factors on research was sex-dependent (p < 0.05).

Conclusion: Structural and administrative reforms, as well as changes in policy research could lead to increased research in education.
