Employing non-parametric test and multiple linear regression, this paper explores the influencing factors of scientific data reuse in the field of cultural heritage from three dimensions of data attribute, data provider and data repository.After controlling the time span factors, license, type, abstracts, formats, publishers, sponsor, and quality management are the main factors positively affecting the reuse of scientific data in the field of cultural heritage, and the degree of influence increases successively.Combining with the actual situation in China, this paper puts forward the following enlightenment: establishing cultural heritage metadata standards to improve the adequacy of data description information; incorporating data reuse into funding requirements to promote data reuse of cultural heritage projects; building a scientific data publishing system for cultural heritage and improving peer review in data publishing; promoting quality management of cultural heritage data and making full use of data repositories.
