Abstract: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between research demands, family demands and research-life conflict. Besides, this study was also conducted to find out which variable makes the strongest unique contribution to explain research-life conflict. The sample of this study came from 240 working women in one of the agencies under Malaysias Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities. They were chosen to participate in this study using purposive sampling technique. A survey questionnaire was used as research instrument for data collection. The findings of this study were supported by previous researchers in which the findings revealed the significant relationship between work demands and family demands with research-life conflict. Meanwhile, research demands were found to be the dominant factor of this study. The issue of research-life conflict should be taken seriously because the effects could be serious not only to individual researchers but also the organizations that employ them and the families who care for them.
