Data without context - not exactly as helpful as it should be. Plum Analytics is looking to change that with the roll out of a recently-added feature on its PlumX Metrics platform. With a new percentiles option, users can now see how an article stacks up against others published by that same journal.
Under the provided metrics on an article's page, you will see additional options for 1 Year and 3 Year. These percentiles illustrate how the article compared to other from that same journal within the respective frame of time. Effects of intensive glucose lowering in type 2 diabetes, for example, was in the top 94th percentile for all NEJM articles within the past year and in the 98th percentile for the past three years.
