Abstract


This study attempts to investigate the structural relation of organizational trust and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) with intellectual capitalat medical and non-medical state universities in the west of Iran. Data collection is carried out by employing the questionnaire of organizational trust based upon Mayer and Davis’s (1999) model, the questionnaire of organizational citizenship behavior based upon the model proposed by Podsakoff et al. (2000), and the questionnaire of Bontis’ (2000)  modelof intellectual capital. The statistical population comprises of 352 full-time faculty members of the above-mentioned universities. The findings revealed that the correlation between organizational trust, organizational citizenship behavior with intellectual capital is positive and significant and the structural equations modeling test shows that the proposed model for prediction of intellectual capital based upon organizational trust and organizational citizenship behavior corresponds to the collected data and organizational trust and organizational citizenship behavior have a positive, significant influence on intellectual capital.Besides, the square of multiple correlations for intellectual capital was measured 0.42. In other words, in this model, organizational trust and organizational citizenship behavioraccount for 42 percent of the variance of intellectual capital. The findings reveal that improving organizational trust and organizational citizenship behavior among the faculty members of the medical and non-medical state universities in the west of Iran leads to the growth of intellectual capital.
