In recent years, universities place a more heavy emphasis on developing the ability of ESL/EFL students to read special¬ized authentic academic texts in order to be successful in the programs of study. In this light, raising awareness of cognitive and met- acognitive strategies that the students can use in completing their reading assignments seems to be of crucial importance. The present study examines cognitive and metacognitive reading strategies of EFL students. The data for this study were collected by means of a reading strategies survey. The correlation analysis and t-tests demonstrated that gender correlates with the use of cognitive and meta¬cognitive reading strategies.The results of the findings revealed that, in general, females used slightly more often cognitive and meta¬cognitive reading strategies than males. The study clearly indicates the need for teaching and raising awareness of cognitive and met¬acognitive reading strategies of the ESL/EFL students as the ones directly involved in cognitive processing of the academic reading materials. In addition, the study generally showed that gender influences selection and use of reading strategies. This fact could have implications for successful reading group activities where both genders would complement each other in the application of text pro¬cessing skills.
