An integral presentation for the scalar products of nested Bethe vectors for the quantum integrable models associated with the quantum affine algebra Uq(^gl3) is given. This result is obtained in the framework of the universal Bethe ansatz, using presentation of the universal Bethe vectors in terms of the total currents of a ''new'' realization of the quantum affine algebra Uq(^gl3).

Key words: Bethe ansatz; quantum affine algebras.
