Score in context

This research output has an Altmetric score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This score was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 May 2013.
All research outputs
#2,704,055
of 3,626,860 outputs
Outputs from BMC Research Notes
#715
of 1,060 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#59,214
of 84,673 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Research Notes
#45
of 65 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 3,626,860 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 24th percentile – i.e., 24% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,060 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean score of 3.4. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% 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 score to the 84,673 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 28th percentile – i.e., 28% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 65 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
