MLA Shift on Copyright; Inside Higher Ed, 6/6/12

Scott Jaschik, Inside Higher Ed; MLA Shift on Copyright:

"Literary scholars on Twitter were offering praise Tuesday for an announcement by the Modern Language Association that it is adopting a new author agreement for its journals (including the flagship PMLA) that will leave copyright with authors, enabling them to post versions in open access repositories, or on individual or departmental websites. The reactions included "Fantastic," "Great open access news," "very cool and important" and "a watershed [for open access] in the humanities?""
