The objectives of this study were to explore the individual, institutional and leadership factors that affect the intellectual productivity of the doctoral programs of the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus; and the bibliometric characterization of the production generated during 2013-2017. The survey, in-depth interview, and bibliometric analysis were used. The very low level of scientific and creative production of these programs is possibly related to institutional and leadership factors that hinder creation, research, innovation, and development activities. Faculty possess the individual qualities of highly productive researchers, yet they work in a bleak institutional environment surrounded by an acute fiscal crisis, overstated bureaucracy, meager resources, and a climate riddled with frustration. Departmental directors—while committed to research—lack the prestige and recognition as highly productive researchers, making it difficult for them to fulfill all the critical leadership roles needed to boost productivity. The findings revealed that the production levels of these doctoral programs for the period studied were not consistent with those expected from an institution classified by the Carnegie Foundation as a highly research-oriented doctoral university (R2).
