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 15 August 2012.
All research outputs
#8,189,079
of 15,922,434 outputs
Outputs from BMJ Open
#8,277
of 14,527 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#59,150
of 130,428 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMJ Open
#3
of 8 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,922,434 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 14,527 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 19.3. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% 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 130,428 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 54% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 5 of them.
