Since there will be different levels of access to data, this will depend on the individual use case. The worldwide community can seek access to 4MOST data once it is released by ESO via the ESO Archive Web Interface at Additionally, we will maintain the 4MOST Public Archive (4PA), which will be a fully-featured spectroscopic archive of 4MOST data releases. 4PA is meant to be the global entry point, offering static data releases with the main focus of enabling science using the 4MOST data products. It will also contain external ancillary catalogues which will be used to formulate queries cross referencing other legacy datasets.
