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 12 November 2022.
All research outputs
#176,150
of 22,613,145 outputs
Outputs from Social Psychological and Personality Science
#120
of 1,353 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#4,017
of 297,450 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Social Psychological and Personality Science
#5
of 25 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,613,145 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 1,353 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 62.4. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% 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 297,450 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 25 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its contemporaries.
