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 06 June 2013.
All research outputs
#5,610,213
of 17,367,552 outputs
Outputs from BMC Biology
#1,044
of 1,499 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#111,718
of 286,930 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Biology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,367,552 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,499 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 19.7. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% 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 286,930 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 58% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
