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 21 December 2018.
All research outputs
#10,142,406
of 12,689,756 outputs
Outputs from Discourse & Society
#239
of 282 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#213,299

Outputs of similar age from Discourse & Society
#4
of 6 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,689,756 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 282 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.5. This one is in the 6th percentile – i.e., 6% 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 284,283 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 6 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 2 of them.
