We present a new preliminary measurement of the inclusive jet cross section in pp collisions based on a integrated luminosity of about 0.8 fb-1. The data were acquired using the DØ detector between 2002 and 2005. Jets are reconstructed using an iterative cone algorithm with radius Rcone = 0:7. The inclusive jet cross section is presented as a function of transverse jet momentum and rapidity. Predictions from perturbative QCD in next-to-leading order, plus threshold corrections in 2-loop accuracy describe the shape in the transverse jet momentum.
