Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. 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 January 2016.
All research outputs
#6,930,669
of 21,353,399 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity
#1,493
of 1,842 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#107,759
of 287,578 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity
#6
of 6 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,353,399 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,842 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 27.8. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% 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 287,578 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 56% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 6 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
