Abstract: Recent STAR data for the directed flow of protons, antiproton s and charged pions obtained within the beam energy scan program are analyzed within the P arton-Hadron-String-Dynamics (PHSD/HSD) transport models and a 3-Fluid hydroDynamics (3 FD) approach. Both versions of the kinetic approach, HSD and PHSD, are used to clarify the ro le of partonic degrees of free- dom. The PHSD results, simulating a partonic phase and its co existence with a hadronic one, are roughly consistent with data. The hydrodynamic results are obtained for two Equation of States (EoS), a pure hadronic EoS and an EoS with a crossover type tra nsition. The latter case is favored by the STAR experimental data. Special attention is paid to t he description of antiproton directed flow based on the balance of p ̄ p annihilation and the inverse processes for p ̄ p pair creation from multi-meson interactions. Generally, the semi-qualitati ve agreement between the measured data and model results supports the idea of a crossover type of qua rk-hadron transition which softens the nuclear EoS but shows no indication of a first-order phase transition
