Delivering excellent Open Knowledge and Open Data on biological invasions and invasive species to all interested stakeholders is a priority objective of INVASIVESNET. This will occur firstly via the publication of the thematic Open Access journals of INVASIVESNET, specifically, Aquatic Invasions, BioInvasions Records and Management of Biological Invasions. These scientific journals, supported by editorial teams of internationally recognised experts serve as a core linking element of INVASIVESNET. Specifically, the INVASIVESNET journals serve as cost-effective instruments for data collection and information management, and provide a platform for linking thematic networks of scientists, database managers and the community of practice.
The incorporation of INVASIVESNET journals into open information systems and databases on invasive species represents an innovative cost-effective approach to invasive species related information management. In addition, this initiative also contributes to the sustainability of the operational information resources associated with INVASIVESNET.
Aquatic Invasions is an Open Access, peer-reviewed international journal focusing on academic research of biological invasions in both inland and coastal water ecosystems from around the world. Read more on this journal
BioInvasions Records is an Open Access, rapid peer-reviewed international journal of field research on biological invasions in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems from around the world. BioInvasions Records is devoted primarily to publication of research and data papers on records of non-native species. The journal provides the opportunity of timely publication of first records of aquatic and terrestrial invaders and other relevant information needed for online databases, decision support and early warning systems.
