The present study investigates academic publishing motivations, experiences and strategies of Saudi researchers from the humanities and social sciences. To achieve its objectives, the study employed the ENEIDA Questionnaire (Gea-Valor et al., 2014; Moreno et al., 2013). Results showed that EAP writing proficiency was rated the lowest by the participants compared to other language communicative components. Also, Arabic language is commonly used to publish research articles in these disciplinary fields. Further, two main factors are responsible for rejections of manuscripts for publication in international English-medium journals. Results indicated that there are past strategies adopted by the participants when seeking to get their findings published in scientific English journals. Also, the participants opted for several methods of formal training on writing research articles. Implications of this study are discussed, limitations of the study were presented, and future research directions are suggested.
