The parameterization of double differential cross sections is made for the neutron emission from proton- induced spallation reaction. The emitted neutron data for incident proton energies of 0.8 to 3 GeV are analyzed by the three-component moving source model based on the Maxwell-like energy distribution. In addition, a Gaussian-shaped term is utilized for reproducing the neutron spectrum originating from the quasi-elastic- and quasi-inelastic-like scattering. The systematics of parameters is obtained in the target mass number region from C to Pb.
