Abstract

There is huge commitment to public and patient involvement (PPI) in UK clinical research. Despite there being wide agreement to practice PPI and national guidance on the subject, there are few practical examples of how to implement PPI and few published models to demonstrate how it can be achieved consistently and constructively across a broad portfolio of studies. The Peninsula Research Bank demonstrates how good PPI can be effectively integrated into experimental medicine research.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 14. 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 03 August 2016.
All research outputs
#870,682
of 11,617,050 outputs
Outputs from Research Involvement and Engagement
#70
of 104 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#24,906
of 232,119 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Research Involvement and Engagement
#6
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,617,050 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 104 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 28.5. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% 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 232,119 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 89% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 4 of them.
