The following pages 2-7 (in p. 5 a figure on The First Five Centuries of Buddhism) by Choong Mun-keat may be useful:
I think the historical terms and their contents, Original Buddhism, Early Buddhism, Sectarian Buddhism, indicated in the above quotation, provide clearer historical phrases for 'Studies in Early Buddhism/EBTs'.

The terms are mainly according to Ven. Yin Shun. The Chinese terms are: 根本佛教 (Original Buddhism), 原始佛教 (Early Buddhism), 部派佛教 (Sectarian Buddhism). See pp. 1-2, Chapter One, in Ven. Yin Shun, The Formation of Early Buddhist Texts (原始佛教聖典之集成) https://cbetaonline.dila.edu.tw/zh/Y0033 :candle: :reading:

Without early Buddhist schools, such as Pali Buddhism, we are simply unable to know about Buddha teachings. One should thank them!

Sectarian Buddhism (EBTs) is the key to study Early Buddhism, and to understand Original Buddhism.
