Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. 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 09 November 2019.
All research outputs
#9,180,111
of 14,983,162 outputs
Outputs from Diseases of the Colon & Rectum
#2,228
of 3,221 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#67,883
of 113,046 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Diseases of the Colon & Rectum
#7
of 61 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,983,162 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,221 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.3. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% 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 113,046 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 61 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its contemporaries.
