Recommendations for the authors of the "Superhard Materials" magazine to improve its bibliometric indexes and increase the impact factor

- In articles submitted to the journal "Superhard materials", it is necessary to highlight the topical issues of international issues in the development of materials science in the field of superhard materials, to confirm the high level of theoretical and practical significance of their research for the international scientific community;

- Submit to the publication of high quality publications in accordance with international standards, to indicate all necessary attributes of the article in accordance with the requirements of the journal;

- To submit an article in structured order in the following order:
