Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 8. 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 29 May 2020.
All research outputs
#2,607,885
of 15,342,780 outputs
Outputs from Africa (Cambridge University Press)
#64
of 614 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#57,127
of 232,389 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Africa (Cambridge University Press)
#3
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,342,780 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 82nd percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 614 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.5. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% 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 232,389 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 3 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
