Abstract

Social media (SM) engagement by healthcare professionals has been well described but in previous studies, colorectal surgeons have notably lower engagement with SM platforms such as Twitter (3.1%), and LinkedIn (37.1%) (1). Recent analysis of oncology hashtags has also reported that colorectal cancer was one of the least engaged hashtag, compared with other organ-related oncology hashtags (2).

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 44. 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 01 September 2018.
All research outputs
#319,290
of 12,225,951 outputs
Outputs from Colorectal Disease
#27
of 1,193 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#14,506
of 266,961 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Colorectal Disease
#3
of 36 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,225,951 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 97th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,193 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.5. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 97% 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 266,961 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 94% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 36 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its contemporaries.
