This white paper addresses the scholarly community of historians. It argues that replication, or in more precise terminology: reproduction, is possible in historiography, and that it deserves a place in historical practice. The most important condition for historical reproduction to work is that we should adapt to the disciplinary specificities of history, instead of simply copying existing forms of replication now circulating in, mainly, the social and biomedical sciences. This white paper explains how we can bring this about.
