Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 79. 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 28 June 2016.
All research outputs
#119,415
of 8,526,178 outputs
Outputs from Science
#3,966
of 42,135 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#3,011
of 179,877 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Science
#135
of 809 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,526,178 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 42,135 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 34.0. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 90% 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 179,877 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 809 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 83% of its contemporaries.
