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 31 August 2013.
All research outputs
#6,238,256
of 12,046,336 outputs
Outputs from Cancer Causes and Control
#921
of 1,494 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#55,268
of 146,879 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cancer Causes and Control
#12
of 27 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,046,336 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 47th percentile – i.e., 47% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,494 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.6. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% 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 146,879 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 61% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 27 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 55% of its contemporaries.
