MLA's new open-access-friendly author agreement

The Modern Language Association has just released new author agreements for its journals (most notable among them PMLA) in which authors will hold copyright to their own work, and are explicitly granted permission to make their work accessible in open-access institutional repositories. It's far from making the whole journals open-access themselves, but it does open up the possibility of open access for authors and institutions committed to those values. See the MLA announcement here and Scott Jaschik's write-up for Inside Higher Ed here.
