Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 513. 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 August 2023.
All research outputs
#51,707
of 26,153,058 outputs
Outputs from Nature
#4,207
of 99,774 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#1,123
of 429,663 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nature
#97
of 821 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 26,153,058 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 99,774 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 103.0. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 95% 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 429,663 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 821 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its contemporaries.
