The neutron capture cross-section of $$^{237}$$Np has been measured in the neutron energy region of 10 meV to 500 eV. A neutron time-of-flight method was employed using the NaI(Tl) spectrometer in the ANNRI beam-line at the Japanese Proton Accelerator Re-search Complex (J-PARC). The experimental capture yield was derived using the pulse-height weighting technique and an energy dependent cross-section was obtained relative to the incident neutron spectrum derived from a $$^{10}$$B(n, $$alpha$$)$$^{7}$$Li reaction yield. The absolute cross-section was determined by normalizing the results to JENDL-4.0 cross-section data at the first resonance of $$^{237}$$Np. The thermal cross-section was measured to be 177.6 $$pm$$ 3.8 b. The resolved resonance region was analyzed with the REFIT code.
