Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 25. 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 25 November 2020.
All research outputs
#1,079,081
of 19,496,717 outputs
Outputs from American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
#2,201
of 12,201 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#12,501
of 198,558 outputs
Outputs of similar age from American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
#33
of 83 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,496,717 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 94th percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 12,201 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 28.6. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% 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 198,558 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 93% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 83 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 61% of its contemporaries.
