Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 18. 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 11 March 2020.
All research outputs
#1,299,148
of 17,373,814 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication
#135
of 583 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#33,178
of 274,496 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication
#2
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,373,814 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 92nd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 583 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 26.1. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% 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 274,496 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 87% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 3 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
