We have investigated the spatially homogeneous and isotropic Friedmann–Robertson–Walker (FRW) universe filled with barotropic fluid and dark energy in the framework of the Brans–Dicke theory of gravitation. Here we have discussed three models: (i) law of variation for Hubble’s parameter, which leads to a constant value of deceleration parameter, (ii) hybrid expansion law model, and (iii) special form of deceleration parameter model. We have found that among all these derived models, the most suitable standard cosmological model according to the recent cosmological observations is the model with special form of deceleration parameter.

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.
