Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 72. 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 14 October 2019.
All research outputs
#317,926
of 16,055,114 outputs
Outputs from The Lancet
#3,608
of 35,315 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#10,430
of 268,992 outputs
Outputs of similar age from The Lancet
#86
of 454 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 16,055,114 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 98th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 35,315 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 49.3. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% 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 268,992 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 96% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 454 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
