Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1421. 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 13 May 2021.
All research outputs
#4,271
of 17,719,454 outputs
Outputs from Science Advances
#53
of 6,494 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#197
of 213,201 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Science Advances
#2
of 231 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,719,454 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 6,494 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 119.7. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% 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 213,201 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 99% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 231 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 99% of its contemporaries.
