Learn English – How to say we provide a synopsis here for details refer to other work in formal academic writing


We provide here a synopsis of the measurement process, for an in-depth
description, please refer to XYZ.

I'm not a native speaker. How do I write that as the first sentence of a chapter in an academic, technical paper?

Also, do I use the word "please" or omit it in formal, technical writing? As in "for an in-depth discussion, please refer to XYZ".

One possibility:

A summary of the measurement process is presented below; for an in-depth description, refer to XYZ.
