Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. 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 20 August 2014.
All research outputs
#9,766,199
of 12,220,568 outputs
Outputs from Zeitschrift für Gerontologie und Geriatrie
#105
of 153 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#138,950
of 208,572 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Zeitschrift für Gerontologie und Geriatrie
#4
of 6 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,220,568 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 153 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.0. This one is in the 22nd percentile – i.e., 22% 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 208,572 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 6 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 2 of them.
