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 17 July 2019.
All research outputs
of 14,130,850 outputs
Outputs from Genome Biology (Online Edition)
of 3,139 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 266,950 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Genome Biology (Online Edition)
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,130,850 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 72nd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,139 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 24.2. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% 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 266,950 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 71% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
