This paper investigates the issue of analytic travelling wave solutions for some important coupled models of fractional order. Analytic travelling wave solutions of the considered model are found by means of the Q-function method. The results give us that the Q-function method is very simple, reliable and effective for searching analytic exact solutions of complex nonlinear partial differential equations.
