Abstract

Skin cancers, including malignant melanoma and keratinocyte skin cancers, are the most common malignancy in the United Kingdom (UK), and global incidence is increasing rapidly1 . While malignant melanoma (MM) accounts for most skin cancer deaths, keratinocyte skin cancers, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and basal cell carcinoma (BCC), comprise up to 95% of skin cancer cases in the UK2,3 . Studies on trends in MM incidence and survival have been conducted using Scottish, Northern Irish, and English and Welsh data4 .

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. 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 September 2020.
All research outputs
#9,745,196
of 16,039,351 outputs
Outputs from British Journal of Dermatology
#4,821
of 7,420 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#152,732
of 280,810 outputs
Outputs of similar age from British Journal of Dermatology
#102
of 144 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 16,039,351 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,420 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.6. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% 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 280,810 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 144 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
