    on hand / at hand

    Examples/ definitions with source references
    The text on hand / at hand deals with the problems young people have in America.
    Are both options (on hand/at hand) correct and commonly used in formal text analysis to refer to the text you are going to talk about?

    Context/ examples
    I'd say that neither is common. Would "the text in question" fit your context?

    BTW, the phrase you were looking for is “at hand” - but I don't think it would be appropriate here. “On hand” would certainly be wrong - it usually means something like "verfügbar", "griffbereit".
