Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 109. 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
#184,506
of 15,425,907 outputs
Outputs from JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association
#3,022
of 27,732 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#177,746
of 14,485,537 outputs
Outputs of similar age from JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association
#2,978
of 26,213 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,425,907 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 27,732 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 57.5. 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 14,485,537 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 26,213 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.
