Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 40. 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 02 November 2018.
All research outputs
#443,945
of 13,769,684 outputs
Outputs from BMC Medicine
#369
of 2,170 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#9,010
of 234,127 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Medicine
#42
of 242 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,769,684 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 96th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,170 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 34.4. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% 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 234,127 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 242 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
