Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 85. 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 10 September 2020.
All research outputs
#262,637
of 16,008,518 outputs
Outputs from British Medical Journal
#3,782
of 49,795 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#7,573
of 264,956 outputs
Outputs of similar age from British Medical Journal
#90
of 868 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 16,008,518 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 98th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 49,795 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 35.0. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% 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 264,956 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 97% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 868 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its contemporaries.
