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 02 January 2013.
All research outputs
#3,156,038
of 4,505,402 outputs
Outputs from BMC Health Services Research
#1,623
of 2,076 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#203,126
of 283,423 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Health Services Research
#119
of 146 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,505,402 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 22nd percentile – i.e., 22% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,076 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.0. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% 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 283,423 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 146 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
