Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 68. 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 17 July 2017.
All research outputs
#134,523
of 8,291,217 outputs
Outputs from BJGP Open
#1
of 42 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#8,741
of 240,152 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BJGP Open
#1
of 18 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,291,217 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 42 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.5. This one scored the same or higher as 41 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 240,152 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 18 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% of its contemporaries.
