Attention Score in Context
This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 140. 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 22 May 2020.
All research outputs
of 24,294,766 outputs
Outputs from The Conversation
of 174,133 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 317,010 outputs
Outputs of similar age from The Conversation
of 4,450 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 24,294,766 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 174,133 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 92.9. 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 317,010 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 98% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 4,450 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% of its contemporaries.
