Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 92. 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 24 February 2019.
All research outputs
#310,489
of 19,545,556 outputs
Outputs from Nature
#17,439
of 84,182 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#2,058
of 233,604 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nature
#209
of 1,040 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 19,545,556 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 98th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 84,182 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 94.6. This one has done well, scoring higher than 79% 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 233,604 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 99% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1,040 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its contemporaries.
