Abstract
The intrinsic Baldwin effect is an anti-correlation between the line equivalent width and the flux of the underlying continuum detected in a single variable active galactic nucleus (AGN). This effect, in spite of the extensive research, is still not well understood, and might give us more information about the physical properties of the line and continuum emission regions in AGNs. Here we present preliminary results of our investigation of the intrinsic Baldwin effect of the broad H$\beta$ line in several Narrow-line Seyfert 1 (NLSy 1) galaxies, for which data were taken from the long-term monitoring campaigns and from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Reverberation Mapping project.
