    Rapidly changing environmental conditions and the increasing establishment of invasive alien species present many challenges for policy
    makers, managers and researchers. The traditional policies for data management, or lack thereof, are obstructing an adequate response to
    invasive alien species, which requires accurate and up-to-date information. This information can only be provided if data regarding invasive
    alien species are available and useable by all, irrespective of country, status or purpose. The best way forward is for researchers to publish
    their data openly, by making use of repositories in which the data are licenced in a permissive manner, while making sure they are credited
    by the adequate provision of citation. Reducing the barriers to data sharing will improve our ability to respond to the growing issue of
    biological invasions.
