JANIS (JAva-based Nuclear Information Software) is a display program designed to facilitate the visualisation and manipulation of nuclear data. Its objective is to allow the user of nuclear data to access numerical and graphical representations without prior knowledge of the storage format. Several standardised data formats are supported, and data originating from the major evaluation libraries, such as ENDF/B, JEFF, JENDL, BROND, etc., can be displayed, inter-correlated, and compared with experimental reaction data in the database EXFOR. Various navigation tools are available to identify the nucleus of interest, and the properties of the selected nuclide are displayed using textual, graphical or tabular formats. JANIS includes the bibliographical database CINDA, where charged particle data has been added recently permitting to establish a link between CINDA and EXFOR. JANIS has developed into a popular tool among researchers and data evaluators and the number of users increase steadily. The program's database is queried over 25,000 times per month. Features included in the latest release are described, and examples given on the use of JANIS.
