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 02 July 2014.
All research outputs
#6,126,907
of 19,527,185 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#6,582
of 12,844 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#61,687
of 201,187 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#3
of 4 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,527,185 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 67th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 12,844 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 13.4. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% 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 201,187 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 68% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 4 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
