I offer no great conclusions with these results . . . apart that FM might have too many "new" authors. In any case, business models are different between magazines, and "new" authors might not be a part of that model. For those that care, the initial basis for "new" was applying Campbell eligibility structure, as a starting point, and anyone exceeding that was no longer considered "new." This seemed the easiest, simpliest way to break this down. If anyone has any questions please let me know.
