Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 50. 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 07 March 2018.
All research outputs
#305,481
of 12,612,351 outputs
Outputs from Chesapeake Science
#1
of 37 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#14,464
of 272,399 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Chesapeake Science
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,612,351 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 97th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 37 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.1. This one scored the same or higher as 36 of them.
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 272,399 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 94% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
