We find that the distribution of stellar masses, dust extinction, star formation rates (SFRs), and specific SFRs, is not statistically different between the two samples. When we separate the full galaxy sample into three subsamples according to the detections of the Hα and/or [Oiii] emission lines, most of the sources detected with both Hα and [Oiii] show log(sSFRUV)&-9.5.

N2 - We investigate the properties of z=2.23 Hα and [Oiii]λ5007 emitters using the narrow-bandselected samples obtained from the High-z Emission Line Survey (HiZELS: Sobral et al. 2013). We construct two samples of the Hα and [Oiii] emitters and compare their integrated physical properties. We find that the distribution of stellar masses, dust extinction, star formation rates (SFRs), and specific SFRs, is not statistically different between the two samples. When we separate the full galaxy sample into three subsamples according to the detections of the Hα and/or [Oiii] emission lines, most of the sources detected with both Hα and [Oiii] show log(sSFRUV)&-9.5.
