Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 108. 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 01 August 2019.
All research outputs
#195,300
of 15,882,115 outputs
Outputs from JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association
#3,145
of 28,136 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#187,961
of 14,880,693 outputs
Outputs of similar age from JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association
#3,118
of 26,653 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,882,115 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 28,136 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 60.4. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% 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 14,880,693 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 98% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 26,653 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its contemporaries.
