Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. 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 02 August 2016.
All research outputs
#2,106,755
of 12,367,173 outputs
Outputs from Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
#3,925
of 7,350 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#60,447
of 266,724 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
#79
of 108 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,367,173 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 7,350 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 26.3. This one is in the 46th percentile – i.e., 46% 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 266,724 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 77% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 108 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
