Research activities in Sadakathullah Appa College, on the one hand contribute to the fundamentals of various sciences, and on the other, to the understanding of socially relevant issues. In order to strengthen and expand the research activities in the institution, Research Promotion Committee (RPC) was established and has been functioning for several years. Teachers in the departments of Tamil, English, Chemistry, Commerce, Computer science, History, Mathematics, Microbiology, Library and Information science, Physics and Zoology have guided research scholars leading to the award of Ph.D. degrees. At present, 104 scholars are working under 38 research supervisors in different disciplines. Our faculty members have received funds to do major and minor research projects from various funding agencies. Apart from working on projects granted by the funding agencies like the UGC, the faculty members have worked on their own and their output can be seen not only as the impressive list of publications but also as books and articles published in journals of repute.

As a result of tireless efforts taken in the research activities, the college has to its credit many research publications in National and International peer reviewed Journals. The faculty members have also presented research papers at various national and international conferences. A total 1047 research papers have been published from 2012 to 2018, out of which 504 research papers have been published in journals and remaining have been published in conferences. It is noteworthy to mention here that out of total research papers published in international journals, more than 300 research papers have published in peer reviewed journals with impact factor from the range 0.5 to 9.0. Research in the college is facilitated by infrastructural and administrative support from the college management. State-of-the-art laboratories, computer and Internet facilities and a well equipped library offer high quality research infrastructure for advanced studies.
