Encyclopedias and Handbooks

4 reasons to consult a handbook (or specialized encyc).  1) Start with a review of the history of the top research before you search for the newer work that builds on it.  2) You will quickly get a overview of the essential arguments in order to decide upon the topic or to reject it.  3) You will be more effective in searching for scholarly journal articles with your mind wrapped around the content and terms.  4) You will avoid the terrible error of omission of failing to cite the key scholars on the topic.
