Here is an excerpt from the announcement:
The Journal of Experimental Linguistics is part of the Linguistic Society of America’s eLanguage initiative. Like the rest of eLanguage, JEL is an Open Access online journal.
JEL is a linguistic “journal of reproducible research”, that is, a journal of reproducible computational experiments on topics related to speech and language. These experiments may involve the analysis of previously published corpus data, or of experiment-specific data that is published for the occasion. Other relevant categories include computational simulations, implementations of diagnostic techniques or task scoring methods, methodological tutorials, and reviews of relevant new publications (including new data and software).
Mark Liberman is the editor in chief.
