This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 18. 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 05 August 2019.
All research outputs
#1,276,808
of 17,361,274 outputs
Outputs from British Medical Journal
#13,969
of 52,112 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#8,683
of 133,023 outputs
Outputs of similar age from British Medical Journal
#154
of 870 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,361,274 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 92nd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 52,112 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 38.7. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% 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 133,023 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 93% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 870 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
