Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. 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 07 November 2013.
All research outputs
#2,145,418
of 12,539,922 outputs
Outputs from Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria
#26
of 526 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#32,366
of 179,022 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria
#1
of 8 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,539,922 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 82nd percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 526 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.5. 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 179,022 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 81% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
