This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 23 March 2021.
All research outputs
#16,534,367
of 20,558,827 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#11,582
of 13,412 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#242,584
of 326,897 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#3
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 20,558,827 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 13,412 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 13.6. This one is in the 6th percentile – i.e., 6% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 326,897 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 3 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
