The deep galaxy sample of MacGillivray & Dodd (1980), obtained from purely objective means, is investigated using the technique of Kuhn & Uson (1982) for the presence of structure of a filamentary nature. A variety of synthetic fields of galaxies (including both ‘filament’ and ‘non-filament’ models) generated by means of a computer simulation technique have also been studied for comparison purposes. No strong evidence for filamentary structure in the galaxy distribution is found for this deep sample.

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.
