In this study, the level density parameter and the gamma ray strength function effects on photoneutron reaction cross-section calculations for Osmium isotopes were investigated by employing available level density models and gamma ray strength functions within Talys v1.8 and Empire v3.1 nuclear codes. A relative variance analysis was done to determine the best gamma ray strength function. Then, the effect of level density models for the photoneutron reactions was investigated by using the best gamma ray strength function. The results were compared with each other and also with the experimental data taken from the literature.
