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.

For the H2O maser host AGN sample, we derived their bolometric luminosity corrections, based on their X-ray data and [O III] emission line luminosities. Our results for maser AGNs is comparable to that of non-maser AGNs.

The infrared properties of Fermi AGNs were investigated using the survey data of the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). The results showed:
BL Lacs tend to be brighter than FSRQs at 3.4 𝜇m. However, with increase of wavelength, FSRQs tend to be brighter than BL Lacs.
FSRQs colours are redder than BL Lacs;
A strong correlation exists between infrared and 𝛾-ray luminosity.

For H2O megamaser galaxy Mrk 348, Chandra and XMM–Newton data are analysed. The nuclear fitting results of XMM–Newton data suggest the possible existence of a heavily obscured AGN. But the nuclear spectrum extracted from Chandra cannot be well-fitted by the best fitting model for XMM–Newton. Further optimal fitting and discussions are needed.

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.
