Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 736. 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 28 November 2018.
All research outputs
#6,103
of 12,357,782 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Glaciology
#1
of 29 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#370
of 266,781 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Glaciology
#1
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,357,782 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 29 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 21.0. This one scored the same or higher as 28 of them.
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 266,781 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 3 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
