Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 19. 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 15 April 2016.
All research outputs
#1,470,798
of 21,022,292 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#3,487
of 12,068 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#8,998
of 142,636 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#14
of 99 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,022,292 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 92nd percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 12,068 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 28.6. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% 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 142,636 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 93% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 99 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 86% of its contemporaries.
