Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 45. 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 13 October 2014.
All research outputs
#306,848
of 12,028,453 outputs
Outputs from The Lancet
#3,549
of 29,752 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#6,305
of 191,818 outputs
Outputs of similar age from The Lancet
#80
of 393 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,028,453 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 97th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 29,752 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 30.9. 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 191,818 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 96% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 393 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 79% of its contemporaries.
