Abstract

Urban-rural variation in cancer incidence, treatment, and clinical outcomes has been well researched. With the growing numbers and longer lifespan of cancer survivors, quality of life (QOL) is now a critical issue. The present study investigates the QOL of head and neck cancer (HNC) survivors in Ireland, paying special attention to urban and rural variation.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. 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 02 June 2014.
All research outputs
#7,522,117
of 12,033,966 outputs
Outputs from Oral Oncology
#466
of 803 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#97,610
of 191,588 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Oral Oncology
#12
of 19 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,033,966 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 803 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.2. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% 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 191,588 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 19 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 10th percentile – i.e., 10% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
