Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 71. 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 31 October 2017.
All research outputs
#190,766
of 12,077,989 outputs
Outputs from Science
#5,719
of 54,143 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#186,897
of 11,432,710 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Science
#5,711
of 53,585 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,077,989 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 54,143 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 36.7. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% 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 11,432,710 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 53,585 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its contemporaries.
