Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 174. 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 09 July 2020.
All research outputs
#103,319
of 15,418,688 outputs
Outputs from Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
#265
of 8,085 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#3,859
of 287,090 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
#10
of 129 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,418,688 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,085 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 32.3. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 96% 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 287,090 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 129 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its contemporaries.
