Annual Reviews are journals that publish review articles (overviews of a topic) only.
Look up original research articles on your topic but read the introduction section first. It will provide an overview of the topic. Keep track of the articles it cites too, and look up the references that might be useful.
Use Knovel to find overviews of common science topics (with citations).
