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 01 April 2011.
All research outputs
#5,612,998
of 17,375,479 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#6,112
of 11,740 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#132,765
of 331,589 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#710
of 1,245 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,375,479 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 11,740 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 12.4. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% 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 331,589 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 1,245 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
