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 25 August 2022.
All research outputs
#197,458
of 22,158,490 outputs
Outputs from American Journal of Political Science
#50
of 1,474 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#5,723
of 430,003 outputs
Outputs of similar age from American Journal of Political Science
#2
of 13 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,158,490 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 1,474 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 29.2. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% 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 430,003 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 98% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 13 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 92% of its contemporaries.
