Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. 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 20 August 2023.
All research outputs
#8,154,149
of 25,158,951 outputs
Outputs from BMC Medical Research Methodology
#1,202
of 2,245 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#146,670
of 428,550 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Medical Research Methodology
#20
of 51 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,158,951 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 66th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,245 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.4. This one is in the 46th percentile – i.e., 46% 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 428,550 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 65% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 51 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its contemporaries.
