Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 111. 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 01 October 2018.
All research outputs
#192,359
of 16,015,066 outputs
Outputs from British Medical Journal
#2,888
of 49,805 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#6,207
of 276,901 outputs
Outputs of similar age from British Medical Journal
#88
of 629 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 16,015,066 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 98th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 49,805 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 35.0. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% 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 276,901 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 629 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 86% of its contemporaries.
