I'm not answering for the editorial staff, but my bet is that they'd like to publish every month. Long ago, almost every magazine did. Now, there are bi-monthlies, quarterlies, and those whose publishing schedule revolves around the season (deer, turkey, whatever) is. Today print magazines are driven so much by advertising dollars and by the increasingly challenging economics of postage and paper costs.
Anyone outside the publishing world has little idea of the financial challenges a magazine has to cope with. Paper prices are bouncing all the time, and when postage rates rise they can't automatically pass on the increase to subscribers. When they do, circulation goes down, so revenue goes down. (It's like taxes. Raise taxes and people spend less, producing lower tax revenues.)
Right now is a particularly difficult time because in the down economy advertisers are buying less ad space, which has a big effect on page count and the bottom line.
Given the realities in today's world, I would expect fewer magazines before I'd expect more.
I don't represent the magazine, so those are just my thoughts. I'd like to hear from the staff because this question is asked often.
