Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. 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 27 January 2021.
All research outputs
#5,623,451
of 20,150,223 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#7,814
of 12,021 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#143,274
of 393,972 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#45
of 48 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 20,150,223 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 70th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 12,021 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 27.9. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
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 393,972 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 48 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 8th percentile – i.e., 8% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
