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 19 June 2012.
All research outputs
#1,806,684
of 3,633,255 outputs
Outputs from Prosthetics and Orthotics International
#52
of 198 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#84,492
of 230,817 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Prosthetics and Orthotics International
#3
of 42 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 3,633,255 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 198 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.4. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% 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 230,817 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 57% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 42 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
