Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. 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 11 February 2014.
All research outputs
#8,185,978
of 14,535,828 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry
#1,227
of 1,900 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#70,574
of 154,963 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry
#8
of 21 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,535,828 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,900 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.5. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
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 154,963 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 53% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 21 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 61% of its contemporaries.
