BEAT Platform User Guide

The BEAT platform is a European computing e-infrastructure for Open Science proposing a solution for open access, scientific information sharing and re-use including data and source code while protecting privacy and confidentiality. It allows easy online access to experimentation and testing in computational science. You define what data and modules you would like to use, we make sure the system runs and provides you with a result. Data from different experiments can be easily compared and searched. The platform also provides an attestation mechanism for your reports (scientific papers, technical documents or certifications).

This guide contains detailed and illustrated information on how to interact with the BEAT platform using its web interface. Before you continue with this guide you should familiar yourself with different components of BEAT (see “Getting Started with BEAT” of BEAT documentation).

In order to take full advantage of the guide, we recommend you register into the platform and follow the tutorials in the order defined in this guide.
