The science performed in Astronomy is digital science, from observing proposals to final publication, including data and software used: each of the elements and actions involved in the scientific output could be recorded in electronic form.
This fact does not prevent the final outcome of an experiment is still difficult to reproduce. An exhaustive process of documentation can be long, tedious, where access to all the resources must be granted, and after all, the repeatability of results is not even guaranteed. At the same time, we have access to a wealth of files, observational data and publications that could be used more efficiently with a better visibility of the scientific production, avoiding duplication of effort and reinvention.
