    The organizational commitment (OC) of academicians in higher education has become critical with the globalization of education. Teachers are the backbone of the process responsible for generating professional workforce for the poverty alleviation and economic development of any country. This role becomes more pervasive in the background of the developing countries (DCs) like Pakistan. The main objective of this ‘Review Article’ is to explore the main determinants of OC in the perspectives of academicians in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) with a view to construct a ‘Theoretical Framework’ of the issue, grounded in the current research on the topic. This framework will then be used as a ‘Research Model’ for the future ‘Empirical-study’, using a survey of academicians from the Universities of Pakistan.
