Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 88. 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 August 2018.
All research outputs
#165,783
of 12,713,260 outputs
Outputs from British Medical Journal
#2,525
of 42,295 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#4,106
of 275,669 outputs
Outputs of similar age from British Medical Journal
#121
of 924 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,713,260 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 42,295 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 28.4. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 94% 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 275,669 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 924 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 86% of its contemporaries.
