The level of job satisfaction of academics remains an important area of research for academicians and academic institutions priority. Therefore, the reason for conducting the study is to investigate the influence of perceptions of organizational politics (POP) and job stress (JST) on job satisfaction (JS) among academicians. Based on the social exchange theory (SET), a research framework is created to establish logical relationships between endogenous and exogenous variables. SET explain that employees behave according to the social response they receive from management. To conduct the analysis, data was collected from 260 teachers from different universities in Punjab, Pakistan, using psychometric questionnaires. SmartPLS version 3.3.3 software is used to evaluate the measurement and structural models to check the reliability, validity and relationship between variables. The rationale behind using this software was that all variables (formative construct) are used as higher order construct (dimensions against each variable) and SmartPLS software provide useful results and the studies on these variables as second order construct are scarce in literature. The results shows that POP has a significant and negative effect on JS and a significant positive relation with JST, while a significant negative effect was observed between JST and JS. The findings provided useful insight for stakeholders and policy makers to focus on issues and to develop an organizational structure to eliminate the influence of POP in academic institutions. Limitations and future recommendations are also presented to pave the new ways for further research in the same area.
