Hypertension Journal
Peer Review Process
Incessant Science Publishers (INS) adheres to the stringent guidelines of rules advised by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) and ICMJE. Each Manuscript submitted to the Hypertension Journal is sent to at least 2 reviewers for peer reviewing, once accepted.

With respect to maintaining the high quality standards of the publication, each manuscript strictly follows the ‘Double Blind Peer Review” process. This means that Authors and the Reviewers are not aware of each other’s identity. The manuscript goes through the process of review from a very well accredited expert followed by the national and international expert editorial board members.

Each Manuscript shall be evaluated on the following basis:
  1. The originality of its contribution
  2. The soundness of its theory and methodology
  3. The coherence of its analysis
  4. Its ability to communicate to readers (Grammar & style)

Peer Review Policy

Manuscripts not submitted elsewhere for publication will be considered. Authors must provide an email address as all communication will be by email. Two files must be furnished: the covering letter and the manuscript in MS Word. The covering letter should be uploaded as a file not for review. All articles submitted to the Journal must comply with these instructions. Failure to do so will result in return of the manuscript and possible delay in publication.

Peer review process

All manuscripts if found suitable will be subjected to a double blinded peer review process which may span for a period of 4-6 weeks.

Submission of revised manuscripts

While submitting a revised manuscript, contributors are requested to include a point to point response to the reviewer's comments at the beginning of the revised manuscript text file itself. In addition, if any changes are made to the manuscript, please mark the changes as underlined or differently colored text in the article.

Page proofs

Page proofs of the manuscript, a form for marking corrections and instructions for filling the form will be sent to the corresponding author by e-mail, before publication of the manuscript. Authors should type the proof corrections in the form and send it to the Editorial Office. While checking the proofs, take note that the text is complete and all figures and tables are included in the proofs.

Respond to all queries from the Editorial Office; check the proofs for changes like spellings, punctuation and setting of text, tables, figures and figure legends. Corrected proofs must be returned to the Editorial office within 72 hrs (3 days) of receipt. The page proofs can be sent to the Editorial Office by uploading through our website or as email attachments.
