I usually give

Jont B. Allen, "Short Term Spectral Analysis, Synthesis, and Modification
by Discrete Fourier Transform", IEEE ASSP-25, June, 1977, pp. 235-238.

The author starts from the continuous case and then imposes sampling and
gives the conditions for minimal time sampling of the filter outputs.
The frame rate has to be at least twice the lowpass-equivalent bandwidth
of the analysis filters, or put another way, twice the bandwidth of the
Fourier transform of the window function.
