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 06 February 2021.
All research outputs
#838,507
of 17,188,187 outputs
Outputs from International Theory: A Journal of International Politics, Law and Philosophy
#17
of 222 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#32,125
of 385,426 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Theory: A Journal of International Politics, Law and Philosophy
#1
of 11 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,188,187 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 95th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 222 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.1. 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 385,426 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 91% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 11 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 99% of its contemporaries.
