It is a fact that academic incentive payment gives academicians an impetus for scientific activities. However, with the academic incentive payment, the views of academicians need to be determined on how scientific activities are affected. The main purpose of this study is to determine the opinions of the academicians working at the Giresun University Faculty of Education about the impact of the academic incentive payment on the academic activities they have done. The research was carried out at Giresun University Faculty of Education at the end of the fall semester of 2016-2017 and 34 academicians working in the Faculty of Education participated in the research. A questionnaire consisting of nine open ended questions was used as data collection tool in the research. The academicians stated the positive contributions of academic incentive payment to scientific activities as the increase in the number of publications, and therefore the increase in the number of citations, the increase in the number of proceedings at least a few by some academicians who have not been engaged in scientific activities for years, and an increase in project participation. The long publication period of the journals, thus, the preference of the paid journals that return in a shorter period of time, the existence of academicians citing each other, and the attendance of the international symposiums/congresses which are increasing uncontrollably in last years with more than one proceeding can be indicated as the reasons of negative views of the academicians about the practice. In order to eliminate these negative situations, it is necessary to make the guidelines clearer for every field and to modify/improve some of the criteria.
