Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 13. 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 01 November 2016.
All research outputs
#1,263,542
of 14,051,039 outputs
Outputs from BMC Zoology
#14
of 40 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#33,360
of 263,496 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Zoology
#2
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,051,039 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 91st percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 40 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 59.9. This one scored the same or higher as 26 of them.
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 263,496 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 87% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 3 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
