Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2899. 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 05 July 2024.
All research outputs
#2,427
of 26,330,421 outputs
Outputs from Environmental Science & Technology
#5
of 21,634 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#23
of 370,293 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Environmental Science & Technology
#1
of 264 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 26,330,421 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 21,634 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 18.2. 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 370,293 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 264 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.
