Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. 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 11 June 2011.
All research outputs
#9,931,782
of 12,406,407 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#7,730
of 8,569 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#9,506,848
of 11,824,038 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#7,452
of 8,221 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,406,407 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,569 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 20.3. This one is in the 3rd percentile – i.e., 3% 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 11,824,038 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 10th percentile – i.e., 10% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8,221 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 3rd percentile – i.e., 3% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
