Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. 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 02 May 2012.
All research outputs
#2,915,713
of 12,503,594 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Industrial Microbiology & Biotechnology
#228
of 956 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#31,703
of 145,471 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Industrial Microbiology & Biotechnology
#3
of 15 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,503,594 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 76th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 956 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.6. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% 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 145,471 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 15 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.
