Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. 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 29 June 2021.
All research outputs
#7,496,019
of 22,914,829 outputs
Outputs from ADS
#9,291
of 37,381 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#139,421
of 420,768 outputs
Outputs of similar age from ADS
#181
of 1,882 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,914,829 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 37,381 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.6. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% 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 420,768 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 53% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1,882 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.
