The KADoNiS (Karlsruhe Astrophysical Database of Nucleosynthesis in Stars) project is an online database ( for cross sections relevant to the s-process and the p-process. The first version was an updated sequel to the previous Bao et al. [1] compilations from 1987 and 2000 for (n; γ) cross sections relevant to Big Bang and s-process nucleosynthesis. The first update, KADoNiS v0.2, was published in 2006 [2]. It contained mainly Maxwellian averaged (n; γ) cross sections relevant to the s-process, and some experimental charged particle induced reaction relevant to the p-process. After that a second update was presented in 2009 [3]. Recently, we started to collect and review all existing experimental data relevant for p-process nucleosynthesis and to provide a user-friendly database based on the KADoNiS framework. The p-process part of the KADoNiS database is currently being extended and will include all available experimental data from (p; γ), (p;n), (p;α), (α, γ), (α, n) and (α p) reactions in or close to the respective Gamow window.
