The Map is a practical guidebook introducing the basics of research in
translation studies for students doing their first major research
project in the field. Depending on where they are studying, this may
be at advanced undergraduate (BA) or at postgraduate (MA/PHD) level.

The book consists of ten chapters. Chapter 1 offers an overview of 12
research areas in translation studies in order to help students
identify a topic and establish some of the current research questions
relating to it. Chapter 2 is designed to assist students in planning
their research project and covers topics such as refining the initial
idea, determining the scope of the project, checking out resources,
reading critically, keeping complete bibliographic records, and
working with a supervisor. Chapters 3 to 7 provide some of the
conceptual and methodological tools needed in this area of research,
with detailed discussion of such topics as theoretical models of
translation, types of research, asking questions, making claims,
formulating hypotheses, establishing relations between variables, and
selecting and analyzing data. Chapters 8 and 9 are about presenting
one�Euro(tm)s research, in writing as well as orally. Finally,
chapter 10 deals with some of the criteria commonly used in research
assessment, especially in the assessment of theses. The authors
provide detailed guidance on further reading throughout.

This is an essential reference work for research students and
lecturers involved in supervising research projects and degrees.
