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 30 May 2014.
All research outputs
#5,618,073
of 17,388,379 outputs
Outputs from BMC Health Services Research
#2,830
of 5,891 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#160,385
of 392,469 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Health Services Research
#354
of 696 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,388,379 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 5,891 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.1. This one is in the 46th percentile – i.e., 46% 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 392,469 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 696 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
