Abstract

An analysis is made of two aspects of smallpox in the Brazilian state of Goiás. One is a historical reconstruction of the main outbreaks in the state in the nineteenth century and the first three decades of the twentieth century, focusing on the increased number of epidemics of the disease as transportation was modernized and the population grew. The other concerns the people's resistance in the nineteenth century to the smallpox vaccine, which may be understood in a broader context of resistance to the modernizations introduced by the State in Goiás. According to the methodology used, smallpox is regarded as a hermeneutic event within the broader efforts to standardize public health made by the public authorities, which ran counter to the local people's values and attitudes.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. 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 18 January 2021.
All research outputs
#4,736,222
of 18,244,737 outputs
Outputs from História, Ciências, Saúde-Manguinhos
#402
of 1,116 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#72,609
of 318,429 outputs
Outputs of similar age from História, Ciências, Saúde-Manguinhos
#7
of 23 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 18,244,737 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 73rd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,116 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.3. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% 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 318,429 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 76% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 23 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
