Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. 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 21 June 2021.
All research outputs
#5,843,875
of 21,392,919 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#7,811
of 12,045 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#58,031
of 224,387 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#160
of 209 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,392,919 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 72nd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 12,045 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 29.1. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% 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 224,387 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 73% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 209 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 22nd percentile – i.e., 22% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
