BayesiaLab User Guide

Our team is currently rewriting this page, along with many other sections of this website, to reflect the features of the latest release of BayesiaLab. So, please consider this a work in progress and excuse errors, broken links, and missing images.

BayesiaLab User Guide


  • Since BayesiaLab's initial release in 2002, this User Guide has grown from a small help file to a comprehensive software documentation, now exceeding 1,500 topics.
  • With the BayesiaLab software eco-system continuing to grow rapidly, this User Guide is very much a living document, with more details being added daily. Plus, the annual cycle of major releases adds countless new features.
  • Beyond documenting the software functionality, this User Guide also serves as a reference to BayesiaLab-related nomenclature.
  • Many of BayesiaLab's analysis functions are entirely new and unique in the world of research, so many BayesiaLab-specific terms are neologisms. Here, you can find what we mean with expressions such as "Target Dynamic Profile" or "Likelihood Matching."
  • In this User Guide, you will also find many cross-references to examples and case studies presented in seminars, webinars, and our e-book, now available as a free online edition within this Knowledge Hub.

User Guide Structure

  • This User Guide's tree structure mirrors the BayesiaLab software's structure.
  • For instance, if you want to learn about the details of the function located in BayesiaLab's menu structure at Menu > Analysis > Visual > Overall > Arc > Mutual Information, the corresponding documentation resides in this User Guide at:
    Analysis | Visual | Overall | Arc | Mutual Information.
  • If the same function is accessible via multiple paths, e.g., from the Main Menu, from the Graph Panel Context Menu, and the Node Context Menu, the main documentation of this function will be attached to the highest level in the hierarchy in this case, the Main Menu. All other mentions of the function will refer back to this main entry.
