Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. 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 01 August 2022.
All research outputs
#13,185,092
of 22,365,276 outputs
Outputs from BMC Health Services Research
#4,527
of 7,447 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#146,422
of 338,381 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Health Services Research
#4
of 5 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,365,276 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 39th percentile – i.e., 39% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,447 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.6. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% 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 338,381 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 54% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 5 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
