Abstract

The incorporation of Internet resources and the use of social media among patients, clinicians, advocates, and researchers in the field of hematology and oncology are growing in importance. Utilization of online information sharing is rising, especially among those involved in rare blood cancer fields, which have generally featured a paucity of reliable, updated information. In particular, blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm (BPDCN), an uncommon, but highly aggressive hematologic malignancy, is one example of a cancer with limited information readily available to the general public. The infrequent incidence of BPDCN, the challenges in recognizing the disease and making a clinico-pathologic diagnosis, and the lack of standard therapies are some of the reasons accounting for the dearth of expert opinion, scientific publications and discussion, and accessibility of online information for patients. This article highlights social media and Internet sources available for patients and other healthcare stakeholders in the field of BPDCN and discusses our efforts to increase awareness and propagation of BPDCN electronic resources, including the founding of an online Twitter community, #BPDCN.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 28. 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 November 2018.
All research outputs
#482,580
of 12,266,041 outputs
Outputs from Current Hematologic Malignancy Reports
#4
of 234 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#17,880
of 266,234 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current Hematologic Malignancy Reports
#1
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,266,041 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 96th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 234 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.1. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% 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 266,234 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 93% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
