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 07 May 2013.
All research outputs
#6,634,780
of 12,484,708 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology
#92
of 253 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#59,749
of 145,643 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology
#2
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,484,708 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 46th percentile – i.e., 46% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 253 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.8. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% 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 145,643 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 3 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
