Abstract

Today, the most reliable scientific development index is the number of documents indexed in the scientific databases in the world. Accordingly, the present research intended to investigate scientific productions of Iranian researchers in translation studies based on the number of documents indexed in Web of Science from 1900 to 2016. To analyze the data, scientometrics and citation analysis methods were used. The research population was comprised of all scientific productions of Iranian researchers in translation studies indexed in the Web of Science. The research results revealed that most scientific productions of Iranian researchers in translation studies were research papers. 50 research works were carried out by Iranian researchers in which 69 researchers took part, which indicates scientific cooperation among these researchers. The highest number of scientific productions occurred in 2011. However, no research work was indexed in translation studies in the Web of Science from 1900 to 1992 by Iranian researchers. Moreover, most researches in translation studies belonged to the branches of Islamic Azad University and Allameh Tabatabai University of Tehran. Finally, the research results demonstrated that most researches of translation studies were indexed in Perspectives, Studies in Translatology.
