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 30 April 2020.
All research outputs
#3,447,158
of 17,595,144 outputs
Outputs from BMC Infectious Diseases
#1,054
of 6,216 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#104,988
of 393,961 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Infectious Diseases
#127
of 663 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,595,144 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 80th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 6,216 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.6. This one has done well, scoring higher than 83% 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 393,961 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 73% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 663 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
