Can Your Results be Replicated?

It's a "given" that your empirical results should be able to be replicated by others. That's why more and more journals are encouraging or requiring that authors of such papers "deposit" their data and code with the journal as a condition of acceptance for publication.

That's all well and good. However, replicating someone's results using their data and code may not mean very much!
