Barisis is located some 20 km west of Laon and 25 km north of Soissons. The village is commonly called Barisis-aux-bois and is in the heart of the national forest of Saint-Gobain. The commune can be accessed by the D1750 road from Pierremande in the west to the village with the D534 continuing east to Saint-Gobain and the D535 going south-east to Septvaux. There is also the D53 road from Amigny-Rouy in the north passing through the village and continuing south to Verneuil-sous-Coucy. The D7 road from Amigny-Rouy to Saint-Gobain passes through the northern corner of the commune. Other than the village there are three hamlets in the commune: Bernagousse, L'Abbaye, and Le Crotoir. The commune is heavily forested - especially in the north - with some areas of farmland.
The Menil stream passes through the commune from south to north joining the Ruisseau de Servais and continuing north forming part of the eastern border of the commune joining with many other streams before joining the Oise.
The spelling of Barisis was registered in the Journal of Laws of 1801 although previously the spelling had been Barizis.
Barisis has an old railway station on the former Chauny to Saint-Gobain line.

(Not all data is known)
In 2010, the commune had 723 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 , the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
