Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. 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 25 April 2021.
All research outputs
#4,735,210
of 19,191,572 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#6,944
of 11,945 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#29,095
of 114,624 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#39
of 72 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,191,572 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 75th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,945 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 27.1. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
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 114,624 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 74% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 72 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
