Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 37. 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 16 November 2023.
All research outputs
#1,086,015
of 25,386,384 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#2,207
of 11,986 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#28,227
of 429,190 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#39
of 170 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 95th percentile: it's in the top 5% 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 done well, scoring higher than 80% 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 429,190 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 92% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 170 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its contemporaries.
