The ALICE detector is capable of reconstructing J/ψ at central rapidity through the e+e− decay channel, down to zero transverse momentum, and has measured its production cross section as well as the fraction of non-prompt J/ψ, produced by the decay of beauty-flavoured hadrons. The latter quantity was evaluated in both pp and Pb–Pb systems down to pT = 1:3 GeV/c. The results obtained by ALICE from the measurements of the inclusive J/ψ yield in p–Pb collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV, as well as the statistical techniques and the status of the analysis concerning the non-prompt J/ψ measurement will be presented in this paper.
