Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. 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 24 December 2018.
All research outputs
#8,462,826
of 14,058,698 outputs
Outputs from BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine
#1,383
of 2,933 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#203,698
of 367,777 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine
#106
of 320 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,058,698 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,933 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.8. 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 367,777 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 320 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 58% of its contemporaries.
