Score in context

This research output has an Altmetric score of 23. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This score was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 April 2014.
All research outputs
#151,539
of 4,505,915 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Archaeological Science
#79
of 1,230 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#7,032
of 127,080 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Archaeological Science
#2
of 24 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,505,915 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 96th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,230 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean score of 6.7. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 93% 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 score to the 127,080 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 24 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its contemporaries.
