Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1505. 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 12 April 2021.
All research outputs
#3,715
of 17,499,602 outputs
Outputs from Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
#136
of 89,566 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#330
of 305,376 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
#13
of 1,096 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,499,602 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 89,566 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 30.9. 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 305,376 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 1,096 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 98% of its contemporaries.
