Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 44. 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 08 February 2019.
All research outputs
#386,078
of 13,454,753 outputs
Outputs from The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology
#276
of 1,270 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#17,222
of 375,789 outputs
Outputs of similar age from The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology
#18
of 67 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,454,753 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 97th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,270 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 54.5. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% 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 375,789 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 67 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its contemporaries.
