Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. 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 25 January 2016.
All research outputs
#3,352,324
of 11,841,856 outputs
Outputs from Current Directions in Psychological Science (Sage Publications Inc.)
#659
of 981 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#78,296
of 264,691 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current Directions in Psychological Science (Sage Publications Inc.)
#14
of 22 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,841,856 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 981 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 23.1. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% 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 264,691 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 22 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
