Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. 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
#2,986,207
of 13,002,044 outputs
Outputs from Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
#4,372
of 7,302 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#64,693
of 257,238 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
#80
of 107 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,002,044 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 76th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,302 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 28.2. This one is in the 39th percentile – i.e., 39% 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 257,238 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 74% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 107 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 25th percentile – i.e., 25% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
