Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. 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 19 August 2020.
All research outputs
#5,414,613
of 16,983,585 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#8,000
of 11,604 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#121,933
of 304,985 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#37
of 37 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 16,983,585 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 67th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,604 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 24.5. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% 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 304,985 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 59% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 37 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 2nd percentile – i.e., 2% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
