Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. 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 27 February 2019.
All research outputs
#3,736,866
of 13,420,095 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#6,666
of 10,588 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#49,931
of 188,691 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#119
of 187 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,420,095 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 71st percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 10,588 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 20.9. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
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 188,691 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 187 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
