Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 293. 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 15 October 2017.
All research outputs
#29,638
of 11,390,615 outputs
Outputs from arXiv
#388
of 562,514 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#541
of 186,279 outputs
Outputs of similar age from arXiv
#3
of 20,594 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,390,615 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 562,514 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.9. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% 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 186,279 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 99% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 20,594 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 99% of its contemporaries.
