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.

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our usual peer review process. We thank referees for their continued support in these challenging times and ask authors for their patience and understanding.
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.
