Selection Criteria
Original MOJAVE
Lister et al. 2009 135
> −20 |b| > 2.5 Total 15 GHz VLBA flux density of at least 1.5 Jy (⩾2 Jy for sources below the celestial equator) at any epoch during the period 1994.0-2004.0.
1.5 Jy MOJAVE
Lister et al. 2013 181
> −30 none
Total 2 cm VLBA flux density exceeding 1.5 Jy at any epoch between 1994.0 and 2010.0.
Fermi-MOJAVE (1FM)
Lister et al. 2011 116
> −30 |b| > 10 Average integrated Fermi LAT >0.1 GeV energy flux ≥ 3 10−11 erg cm−2 s−1 between 2008 August 4 and 2009 July 5 (1FGL catalog period).
Hard-Spectrum MOJAVE

132
> −20 none
Mean Fermi 2LAC or 3LAC spectral index harder than 2.1, and total 15 GHz VLBA flux density > 0.1 Jy.
Low-Luminosity MOJAVE
Lister et al. 2013 43
> −30 none
8 GHz VLBA flux density > 0.35 Jy and redshift ≤ 0.3

Note: all samples exclude gravitationally lensed AGNs. Some AGNs are members of more than one of the above samples.

Over 150 other AGNs with J2000 declination greater than −30 and total 15 GHz VLBA flux density of at least 0.1 Jy have been added to MOJAVE on the basis of membership in the:

Many of the AGNs listed above are no longer being monitored by our program. A full list of currently-monitored and past-monitored MOJAVE AGNs can be found in our on-line data archive page

Beginning in 2016, we will be observing a set of accelerating jets, as well as 50 new target AGN from the Fermi LAT-monitored list, the 2FHL and 3FGL Fermi catalogs, and the RoboPol sample. For more information see our Data Archive page.

In 2017-18 we will be carrying out limited epoch 43 GHz VLBA observations of 14 AGNs from the above lists that were too compact to measure jet kinematics at 15 GHz: PKS 0048-097, OC -228 (0116-219), AO 0235+164, OE -280 (0347-211), S4 1030+415, PKS 1124-186, B2 1324+224, PMN J1332-1256 (1329-126), PKS 1519-273, PKS 1622-253, 4C +51.37 (1739+522), PKS 1741-038, PKS 1958-179, PKS 2144+092.
