عنوان مقاله [English]
Making a systematic inquiry and applying appropriate methods and approaches to investigating a phenomenon are among the main academic concerns. Within translation studies, endeavors have been made to illustrate different aspects of related methodology. In this regard, Research Methodologies in Translation Studies aims to cover a wide range of interdisciplinary methodologies and contribute to the cross-fertilization of diverse research practices that inform translation studies. In this book, Saldanha and O'Brien emphasize the priority of understanding epistemology and ontology of research to engaging in any research. They explain the main elements and principles of a systematic research and try to deal with the main issues of research in descriptive translation studies such as product, process, participants and context. This paper aims to critically discuss the content and structure of the book. The paper begins with a brief review of the chapters at the first step and then continues by reasoning and exemplifying the potential strengths and weaknesses. Considering the aims of authors and the strengths and weaknesses, the paper discusses its appropriateness for using it as a textbook at MA and PhD levels in Iranian universities, as it has been used for the purpose immediately after publishing.
