    Default Seminal articles

    1) Seminal articles =?
    I guess "seminal" means "Of, relating to, or having the power to originate; creative." Or, "Highly influential in an original way; constituting or providing a basis for further development."

    Context:
    Google Scholar also automatically analyzes and extracts citations and presents them as separate results, even if the documents they refer to are not online. This means your search results may include citations of older works and seminal articles that appear only in books or other offline publications.


    2) From the cover =?
    Context:
    From The Cover: Generation of hair cells by stepwise differentiation of embryonic stem cells
    H Li, G Roblin, H Liu, S Heller - Cited by 7
    The increase in life expectancy is accompanied by the growing burden of chronic
    diseases. Hearing loss is perhaps the most prevalent of all chronic

    1. yes, it is NOT talking about any bodily fluids ;)

    2. the phrase "Generation of hair cells by stepwise differentiation of embryonic stem cells" is on the cover (front or inside maybe) of the book/article/journal

    they're saying they generated that summary by ripping it straight from the cover

    Though the word shares its origin with bodily fluids.
