Conference Proceedings

General information

ICMB XI is collaborating with the International Association for Open Knowledge on Invasive Species (INVASIVESNET) on publication of conference proceedings. Currently INVASIVESNET has three open access, peer-reviewed international journals:

In 2019, Management of Biological Invasions and Aquatic Invasions served as publication platforms for the ICMB X proceedings.

For ICMB XI, we will publish two special issues of INVASIVESNET journals to highlight research presented at the conference:

We encourage all ICMB XI participants to submit their research manuscripts for publication in the conference proceedings.

Editors for the Special Issues

Dr. Tammy Robinson (South Africa)

Dr. Thomas Therriault (Canada)

The responsible thematic Deputy Editor-in-Chief for both special issues is Dr. Amy Fowler (USA).

Submission Deadline and Review Process

The deadline for manuscript submission is November 1, 2023, with final versions of the manuscripts due (following the review process) by May 1, 2024.

All papers will be reviewed in accordance with the usual Aquatic Invasions and Management of Biological Invasions review processes and cannot be assured of acceptance until they have met the standards for peer review. The guest editors will manage the special issue, although the Deputy Editor-in-Chief for ICMB proceedings retains the final decision on the acceptance of papers and will work closely with the guest editors during the editorial process. If a submitted paper is authored or co-authored by a guest editor, that submission will be handled by a different guest editor.

Article Processing Charges
