Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. 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 04 March 2018.
All research outputs
#2,039,085
of 9,339,536 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#5,249
of 8,943 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#1,951,914
of 8,688,389 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#5,231
of 8,859 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,339,536 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 78th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,943 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 19.8. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% 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 8,688,389 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8,859 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
