Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. 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 19 October 2011.
All research outputs
#2,501,121
of 4,701,337 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity
#648
of 775 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#29,833
of 69,879 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity
#23
of 32 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,701,337 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 775 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 12.0. This one is in the 10th percentile – i.e., 10% 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 69,879 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 32 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
