Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. 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 21 November 2011.
All research outputs
#4,338,517
of 14,297,445 outputs
Outputs from BMC Health Services Research
#2,202
of 4,851 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#105,318
of 273,785 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Health Services Research
#2
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,297,445 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,851 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.7. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 50% 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 273,785 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
