Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 27. 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 28 November 2016.
All research outputs
#752,371
of 15,443,503 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#2,123
of 11,183 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#10,634
of 260,993 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#117
of 507 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,443,503 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 95th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,183 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 23.1. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% 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 260,993 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 95% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 507 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
