Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. 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 04 June 2013.
All research outputs
#2,370,635
of 11,283,574 outputs
Outputs from BMC Infectious Diseases
#703
of 4,208 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#25,761
of 131,043 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Infectious Diseases
#25
of 139 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,283,574 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 78th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,208 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.2. 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 131,043 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 139 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
