Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. 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 19 August 2015.
All research outputs
#1,807,356
of 7,718,921 outputs
Outputs from Chiropractic & Manual Therapies
#151
of 259 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#19,259
of 81,665 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Chiropractic & Manual Therapies
#5
of 6 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,718,921 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 76th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 259 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.0. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% 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 81,665 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
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.
