A sample of 92 galaxies with published surface photometric data inB band and inclined randomly to the line of sight is selected and used to compute the photometric parameterQN. The dependence ofQN on the apparent flatteningq is found and discussed for different morphological groups.QN is more sensitive toq in earlier-type galaxies.

Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
