Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. 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 June 2017.
All research outputs
#2,799,940
of 12,616,404 outputs
Outputs from Asian-Pacific Journal of Second and Foreign Language Education
#3
of 15 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#64,385
of 263,105 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Asian-Pacific Journal of Second and Foreign Language Education
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,616,404 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 77th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 15 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one scored the same or higher as 12 of them.
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 263,105 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 75% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
