FACTORS AFFECTING STRESS LEVEL IN RESEARCH SCHOLARS
Stress is very common in today’s busy life. Everyone, no matter at what stage they are at, all suffer from some sort of stress. Everyone has some source of stress in their life. For example, people who work or are at some job have stress of completion of their work within stipulated time, college students have stress related to their future, and one another group is of PhD students or research scholars who have various sources of stress like research article publication, completion of thesis within stipulated time, meeting supervisor guidelines, etc. The objective of this article is to identify the factors which leads to stress among research scholars, and also to study the relationship between demographic factors and stress level among the research scholars. This article also studied the impact of the stress on the performance and health of the research scholars. To collect the data both primary and secondary sources are used. To identify the factors that affect the stress among research scholars of different departments in different universities a sample of 150 scholars has been used. To analyze data correlation and factor analysis methods are being used. It was identified that most of the factors are moderately correlated. In factor analysis, six components were identified which are classified under three dimension which are Research work dimensions, family and Affective dimensions of stress.
