Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 32. 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 23 March 2018.
All research outputs
#468,316
of 12,698,622 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#1,540
of 10,403 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#5,556
of 209,638 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#80
of 494 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,698,622 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 10,403 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 20.3. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% 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 209,638 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 97% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 494 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.
