Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 9. 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 24 January 2012.
All research outputs
#1,017,823
of 8,102,415 outputs
Outputs from BMC Public Health
#1,365
of 6,947 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#981,976
of 7,470,125 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Public Health
#1,361
of 6,892 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,102,415 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 87th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 6,947 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.0. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% 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 7,470,125 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 86% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 6,892 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
