Abstract

Young people in European countries are experiencing high levels of alcohol and drug use and escalating levels of sexually transmitted infections. Individually these represent major public health priorities. Understanding of the association between sex and substance use, and specifically the strategic roles for which young people utilise substances to facilitate sexual activity, remains limited.

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 26 September 2010.
All research outputs
#6,760,335
of 20,797,992 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#7,213
of 13,538 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#66,766
of 205,405 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#3
of 4 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 20,797,992 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 13,538 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 13.6. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% 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 205,405 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 4 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
