I am writing a scientific paper and I won't be able to go in the details of a certain topic. I am considering to write something like: "The topic XXX is beyond the scope of this paper.". I know that this is a common practice in research and it will not be a problem to write such a phrase. However, since I think that it is a good idea to direct the reader towards useful literature about the XXX topic. For this reason, I was wondering how to write that in English. The alternatives I have in mind are:
- A complete survey of the topic XXX is beyond the scope of this paper [1,2,3].
- A complete survey of the topic XXX is beyond the scope of this paper and the reader is directed to [1,2,3] for further details.
- A complete survey of the topic XXX is beyond the scope of this paper and the reader is referred to the literature for further details [1,2,3].
*where [1,2,3] are just examples of the referred literature
Unfortunately, I don't like any of them so far but I prefer 3. Could you help me with finding a solution?
