Malin 1, being a class of giant low surface galaxies, continues to surprise us even today. The HST/F814W observation has shown that the central region of Malin 1 is more like a normal SB0/a galaxy, while the rest of the disk has the characteristic of a low surface brightness system. The AstroSat/UVITobservations suggest scattered recent star formation activity all over the disk, especially along the spiral arms. The central 900 ($\sim$14 kpc) region, similar to the size of the Milky Way’s stellar disk, has a number of far-UV clumps—indicating recent star-formation activity. The high resolution UVIT/F154W image revealsfar-UV emission within the bar region ($\sim$4 kpc)—suggesting the presence of hot, young stars in the bar. These young stars from the bar region are perhaps responsible for producing the strong emission lines such as Ha, [O

Continuous Article Publishing mode
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.
