Abstract A program is presented that calculates the production by nucleon-induced spallation of all radionuclides with halflives in the range 25 days-5 million years, from an initially pure substance. Title of program: COSMO Catalogue Id: ACJN_v1_0 Nature of problem Particularly in low-level counting applications (design of Dark Matter and neutrinoless-beta beta decay experiments), it is important to have estimates of the cosmogenic activity produced in detector and cryostat materials by interaction of cosmic rays. With straightforward modifications, program would also be useful in computing induced radioactivity in accelerator components exposed to nucleon beams of energy greater than 50-100 MeV. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ACJN_v1_0; COSMO; 10.1016/0010-4655(92)90008-M This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
