Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1393. 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 13 October 2022.
All research outputs
#7,115
of 22,557,763 outputs
Outputs from JAMA Internal Medicine
#94
of 4,912 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#374
of 315,481 outputs
Outputs of similar age from JAMA Internal Medicine
#4
of 95 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,557,763 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 4,912 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 158.6. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% 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 315,481 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 95 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 96% of its contemporaries.
