Scientific researchers in China have a high incidence of job burnout and the research on job burnout of researcher has become a hot issue in the academic community. This paper focuses on the field of Library and Information, introducing panel data analysis model to identify the influencing factors of burnout syndrome of scientific researchers, with the level of burnout symptoms calculated by individual academic performances. Results have shown that age, gender, and professional title of scientific researchers significantly affect their burnout level. Scientific institutions and academic community need to optimize management system and improve evaluation system, so as to lower the level of burnout of scientific researchers.
