Abstract

Data citation and the derivation of semantic constructs directly from datasets have now both found their place in scientific communication. The social challenge facing us is to maintain the value of traditional narrative publications and their relationship to the datasets they report upon while at the same time developing appropriate metrics for citation of data and data constructs.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 74. 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 21 April 2016.
All research outputs
#209,291
of 12,879,459 outputs
Outputs from Nature Genetics
#633
of 6,104 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#204,212
of 12,302,194 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nature Genetics
#633
of 6,101 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,879,459 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 6,104 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 30.6. 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 12,302,194 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 6,101 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.
