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 07 September 2022.
All research outputs
#13,837
of 22,173,707 outputs
Outputs from American Political Science Review
#2
of 2,580 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#349
of 352,991 outputs
Outputs of similar age from American Political Science Review
#1
of 15 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,173,707 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,580 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 26.5. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% 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 352,991 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 99% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 15 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its contemporaries.
