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:
Peer Review Policy

possible delay in publication.

point response to the reviewer's comments at the beginning of the revised manuscript
