Faculty members of State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) perform research function in addition to instruction, extension and production. This study was conducted to look into the profile of the published research from year of entry up to year 2008 of the regular faculty members of the First Semester of SY 2008-2009 at the College of Business Administration and Accountancy (CBAA) of the University of Northern Philippines (UNP) as affected by some personal and professional factors. It utilized the correlational design of descriptive method of research. Findings showed that the CBAA faculty is characterized by dominance of members of the female sex, of married status, of middle to senior age, with master’s degree, with academic rank of associate professor, and with official designations. Almost half of them have received monthly salary ranging from P10, 001 – P20, 000. Very few are members of scientific/research organizations. The CBAA faculty have published research since 2000. From 2000 to 2008, a total of 43 researches have been published. These were done by nearly half (19) of the 39 regular CBAA faculty members. More researches were done with co-authors than researches by single authors. Most of these researches are of college and curricular program levels, and over four-fifths were financed personally by the faculty researchers. All the researches were published in research journals and some of them were also disseminated in lecture fora and research dissemination and utilization seminars. One research was disseminated through poster exhibit. Majority of the regular CBAA faculty members have never participated in any research activity since their year of entry to the University up to year 2008. Educational attainment and membership in scientific/research organizations came out as good indicators of faculty research productivity.
