This article provides an overview of a new integrated software tool for reduction and analysis of small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) data from fibrous collagen tissues, with some wider applicability to other cylindrically symmetric scattering systems. <i>SAXS4COLL</i> combines interactive features for data pre-processing, bespoke background subtraction, semi-automated peak detection and calibration. Both equatorial and meridional SAXS peak parameters can be measured, and the former can be deconstructed into cylinder and lattice contributions. Finally, the software combines functionality for determination of collagen spatial order parameters with a rudimentary orientation plot capability.
