"Exploring the Relationship between Traditional Bibliometrics and Altmetric Scores in the Primary Care Literature"

  • There is some evidence that Altmetric scores correlate with citations in medical research, but this is not consistent across different specialties.
  • No previous studies have examined the association between Altmetric score and citation amongst primary care research journals.
  • Using correlation coefficients and log–log linear regression modelling, this study found a relationship between Altmetric score and citations.
  • A 10% increase in Altmetric score was associated with a 1.68% (95% CI: 0.87%–2.50%) increase in citations.
