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 31 August 2019.
All research outputs
#11,929,401
of 14,986,174 outputs
Outputs from BMC Medical Research Methodology
#1,168
of 1,389 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#185,952
of 266,178 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Medical Research Methodology
#6
of 6 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,986,174 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,389 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.5. This one is in the 8th percentile – i.e., 8% 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 266,178 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 17th percentile – i.e., 17% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 6 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
