New experimental data on the peak neutron production in the 7Li(p,n) reaction were collected during several irradiation campaigns at the NPI CAS. Time-of-flight method was used to measure the number of the peak neutrons in the forward direction, and the number of produced 7Be nuclei was determined using γ-spectrometry. The new measurement results are compared with experimental data from the literature and used for the validation of several different systematics and nuclear data libraries developed over the years.
