Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 118. 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 27 June 2014.
All research outputs
#201,362
of 17,389,828 outputs
Outputs from Science
#6,742
of 70,633 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#5,022
of 248,722 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Science
#137
of 615 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,389,828 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 98th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 70,633 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 54.9. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 90% 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 248,722 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 98% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 615 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its contemporaries.
