Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 30. 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 27 July 2021.
All research outputs
#957,536
of 20,117,040 outputs
Outputs from Emerging Infectious Diseases
#1,101
of 8,459 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#30,121
of 434,848 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Emerging Infectious Diseases
#26
of 158 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 20,117,040 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 95th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,459 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 42.9. This one has done well, scoring higher than 86% 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 434,848 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 93% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 158 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its contemporaries.
