Following the Linked Data principles means maximising the reusability of data over the Web. Reuse of datasets can become apparent when datasets are linked to from other datasets, and referred in scientific articles or community discussions. It can thus be measured, similarly to citations of papers. In this paper we propose dataset reuse metrics and use these metrics to analyse indications of dataset reuse in different communication channels within a scientific community. In particular we consider mailing lists and publications in the Semantic Web community and their correlation with data interlinking. Our results demonstrate that indications of dataset reuse across different communication channels and reuse in terms of data interlinking are positively correlated.
