The Fair Access to Science and Technology Research (FASTR) bill has been reintroduced with bipartisan support. One difference between FASTR and the White House memo of a couple years ago, is that FASTR requires an electronic copy of a journal article resulting from publicly-funded research to be made available within six months of publication.
Penn State has announced the start of a new OA journal called Digital Literary Studies. Digital Literary Studies will publish “scholarly articles on research concerned with computational approaches to literary analysis/criticism, or critical/literary approaches to electronic literature, digital media, and textual resources”. Their call for submissions for the inaugural issue is available here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HkemFkypCkfTbumLUpYCaZn9LQaKpyWU8fkq7ulcOhE/edit
