    • Abstract


      The Eddington ratio 𝜆 was derived for the entire maser host AGN sample, based on the intrinsic X-ray luminosity, the X-ray bolometric correction 𝐶X and the mass of central black hole. Further the [O III] bolometric correction 𝐶[O III] was estimated for our sample. Possible relations were also investigated between the maser luminosity and the bolometric luminosity – the Eddington ratio.

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      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.
