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 29 November 2018.
All research outputs
#5,080,217
of 16,687,092 outputs
Outputs from BMC Infectious Diseases
#1,599
of 6,018 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#144,932
of 394,384 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Infectious Diseases
#146
of 593 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 16,687,092 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 69th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 6,018 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.4. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its peers.
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 394,384 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 63% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 593 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
