Background and aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the general patterns of scientific productions, impact factor and open access publishing of international researchers and compare them between males and females.
Material and methods: This scientometric and webometric, from a variety of survey methods, investigated the status of male and female scientific productions and the status of open access and non-open access papers in the web in the field of nanosience and nanotechnology (N&N) using comparative approach. Research population consisted of all female and male international researchers in the field of N&N, contributing three or less than three papers from 2007 to 2009.
Findings: The results showed that there was no significant difference between female and male international researchers in terms of the mean of the open access papers and impact factor. However, there was significant difference between the frequency of male and female researchers in favor of men.
Conclusion: Gender has no effect on open access publishing, visibility, and increasing citation and impact factor.

Keywords: Scientific production, Impact factor, International researchers, Open access publishing, Nanosience & Nanotechnology
