Which code of behavior should form the basis of science and research? Replicability is definitely among these values. It is a pivotal feature of good scientific practice. Only replicable results are indeed scientific results. Studies that cannot be replicated are, strictly speaking, not scientific, but – given they are good – a type of feuilleton. Still, to most researchers – and this might seem surprising – facilitating and particularly conducting a replication study is anything but a matter of course.
