Abstract: FITS Header Keywords provide information about the observation, type of data and post-observation processing. Each FITS header contains a unique combination of keywords appropriate for the type of observation. Many keywords are common to all JWST data while others are instrument-specific. The James Web Space Telescope uses JavaScript Object Notation or JSON, to define the collection of keywords appearing in each product's FITS headers. JSON enables a flexible scheme of sharing keyword information across the JWST data reduction and archive systems.
