When evaluating academic performance, research criteria are taken into consideration as well as quality of the instructional delivery. Scientific research is usually carried out by universities. The impact of the academic incentive plan, which was initiated in 2016 in Turkey, can be revealed by comparing the academic incentive results of 2017 with the results of the previous year. The aim of this study is to compare the results of the academic incentive plan for 2016 and 2017 and to examine them in terms of universities, titles, faculties and gender. As a result of this study, 67 academic incentive reports were examined, and it was found that the rate of academic incentives increased by approximately 12 points. Similarly, the average academic incentive score increased by 8.5 points. Associate professor, professor, assistant professor, research assistant and others were ranked as the academic titles receiving the highest amount of incentive, respectively as determined by the analyses performed on the basis of the titles, and it was found out that this order did not change in 2017 either. Our gender analysis revealed that the ratio of academic incentives given to the males increased by approximately 11 points, while for females this ratio increased by approximately 15 points. According to the analysis conducted on individual faculties, it was determined that the highest academic incentive was in the Faculty of Pharmacy in both 2016 and 2017. The lowest average was in the Faculty of Theology in 2016, and in the Faculty of Law in 2017. The ratios of academic staff who earned 30 points and 100 points were examined and it was determined that the ratio of academic staff that earned the maximum 100 points increased while the percentage of academic staff who earned 30 points decreased. These results show that academic incentive plan contributed significantly to the quantitative increase in academic research within one year.
