Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 341. 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 26 May 2024.
All research outputs
#99,241
of 25,984,519 outputs
Outputs from PLOS ONE
#1,591
of 226,897 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#1,609
of 376,139 outputs
Outputs of similar age from PLOS ONE
#27
of 5,320 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,984,519 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 226,897 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 15.9. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% 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 376,139 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 99% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 5,320 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its contemporaries.
