Oxygen is one of the most important materials in nuclear applications. However, there are big discrepancies among experimental and evaluated data in $$^{16}$$O($$n,alpha$$) cross section. Also, there are increasing demands for giving uncertainties in evaluated cross section to estimate the margin of integral calculations. We analyzed experimental cross sections with R-matrix theory, and estimated cross sections with their uncertainties. In this analysis, not only the neutron but also an inverse reactions were included. The systematic uncertainties were also considered for each measurement. The resulting cross sections and uncertainties mirror both experimental and theoretical knowledges.
