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 23 March 2012.
All research outputs
#7,170,310
of 22,663,969 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity
#1,551
of 1,916 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#50,414
of 159,946 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity
#11
of 28 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,663,969 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 67th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,916 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 28.4. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% 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 159,946 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 67% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 28 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 60% of its contemporaries.
