Abstract

As development on scientific technology and socialization on the scientific research, the management on exoteric and collective scientific research becomes more difficult. The paper gives the subjects of 670 teachers coming from some universities from Jiangsu province.

Three underlying factors were found and are referred to as meet‘academic expectations’, ‘commitment’ and finally ‘above and beyond’. The qualitative research of the paper identified four key foci of academic responsibility-the university, the discipline, society and students, which greatly influenced the formation and effects of member incentive of scientific research group based on psychological contracts.
