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 13 August 2013.
All research outputs
#10,391,141
of 13,027,787 outputs
Outputs from Irish Journal of Medical Science
#453
of 692 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#106,000
of 154,169 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Irish Journal of Medical Science
#10
of 17 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,027,787 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 692 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% 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 154,169 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 17 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
