Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 150. 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 25 July 2021.
All research outputs
#173,655
of 19,195,752 outputs
Outputs from Science
#5,830
of 73,917 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#5,209
of 334,919 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Science
#157
of 830 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,195,752 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 73,917 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 57.7. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% 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 334,919 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 830 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
