    Abstract

    We write to provide a counter view to the recent open letter (“Plan S: Too Far, Too Risky”), partly based on our FOAA recommendations for the implementation of Plan S. We are glad to note that the researchers who have signed the open letter support open access as their very first principle. However, the letter itself goes on to make a number of highly problematic and logically fallacious statements with which we strongly disagree and here contest.
