Read a chapter or two in a handbook to get a quick understanding of a subject area.
In this context, handbooks are defined as publications that provide theoretical overviews rather than practical instructions. Handbooks contain collections of chapters that cover a certain subject area or field. They can provide you with an introduction, the theories that are used within the research, and its most important authors, as well as good reference lists of the most important contributions to the field.
Handbooks explain the various terms used within the specific field. Therefore, handbooks provide a shortcut to important original sources.
