We analyzed the radio (4.8, 8.0 and 14.5 GHz) light curves from UMRAO database and the optical data of quasar 1156+295 and found that the quasar exhibited remarkable quasi-periodic long-term flux variations in both radio and optical bands with a similar variability timescale of 1.2 ± 0.3 yr. In addition, when a cross correlation analysis was adopted to the radio and optical light curves, we found that the optical variations may precede those of the radio e.g., at 14.5 GHz by ∼ 200 days.

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.
