Biological Invasions publishes research and synthesis papers on patterns and processes of biological invasions in terrestrial, freshwater, and marine (including brackish) ecosystems. Also of interest are scholarly papers on management and policy issues as they relate to conservation programs and the global amelioration or control of invasions. The journal will consider proposals for special issues resulting from conferences or workshops on invasions. There are no page charges to publish in this journal.
Why publish with us
- Our renowned Editor-in-Chief and highly regarded Editorial Board are some of the world's leading voices in invasion biology. By combining rigorous expert assessment with our extensive peer review network, we provide a service with the highest standards.
- We publish research and synthesis papers on patterns and processes of biological invasions in terrestrial, freshwater, and marine (including brackish) ecosystems. We also welcome Special Papers on Alien Floras and Faunas, Elton Reviews, Flashpoints, and Invasion Notes.
- We work hard to ensure that your article can be easily discovered, accessed, understood, used and shared, to provide maximum impact and act as a springboard for further discovery.

Invasion of the New Zealand mud snail (Potamopyrgus antipodarum) in the Green River below Flaming Gorge Dam
Do not come late to the party: initial success of nonnative species is contingent on timing of arrival of co-occurring nonnatives
Local coexistence of native and invasive ant species is associated with micro-spatial shifts in foraging activity
Patterns of post-fire invasion of semiarid shrub-steppe reveals a diversity of invasion niches within an exotic annual grass community
Find out about the special issues published in Biological Invasions.
The Elton Review series in Biological Invasions is named in recognition of Charles Elton, whose 1958 monograph, The Ecology of Invasions by Animals and Plants, called attention to the scope and impacts of invasions. Read more.
This section includes papers that provide information on complete alien floras or faunas of large regions, such as countries, with clearly described criteria used to assess the species’ status as casual, naturalized, or invasive. Read more.
Flashpoints are invited paired contributions published together on substantial disputes, knowledge gaps, or controversies over invasion biology, management, or policy. Read more
