Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 40. 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 01 August 2022.
All research outputs
#817,178
of 21,792,852 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#1,814
of 12,114 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#8,065
of 295,113 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#69
of 442 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,792,852 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 96th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 12,114 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 29.6. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% 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 295,113 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 442 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its contemporaries.
