Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 26. 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 24 March 2023.
All research outputs
#1,458,977
of 25,386,384 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#3,122
of 11,986 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#5,171
of 110,170 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#11
of 70 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,386,384 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 94th percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,986 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 38.5. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% 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 110,170 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 95% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 70 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its contemporaries.
