Knowledge of parton distribution functions (PDFs) at large momentum fraction x is not only important to study the flavor and spin dynamics of quarks in the nucleon, but also to search for signals of new physics at collider experiments. It is well known now that the nonperturbative QCD effects generally play a more significant role at such kinematic regions. In this work, we present an open-source QCD analysis of PDFs considering target mass corrections (TMCs) and higher-twist (HT) effects which are necessary when the analysis includes also data points from deep inelastic scattering (DIS) with larger values of x and smaller values of photon virtuality Q2. To this aim, we use the xFitter package, as a comprehensive and powerful tool for studying PDFs. We report and discuss our recent activities on the implementation of TMCs and HT effects in the xFitter framework in a user-friendly way, so that the user can switch on or off them, and also choose between different options. We check the validity of the modifications by performing sample analyses of PDFs considering TMCs and HT effects and using a wide range of DIS data.
