No, but I've had success in other trade rags (BeeCulture magazine, among others) and this, combined with some quality writing would be everything you need. I used to begin all my articles with research (finding the docs) and then writing around it. Done it so much it's like a formula almost.
<midline story with intro to information>
<fact delivery (with tie in to hook)>
It's not magic nor exactly formula - it's a method that yields entertaining articles.
For examples of what I'm talking about, see my web site - "cracking the pollen case," or "central heat" are the two latest examples. I have a few more but they haven't hit the stands yet and not every editor is kind enough to take 1NASR without online first rights.
