The article presents two scientific cultures, which have different indicators and measures of scientific achievements. Community orientated culture is interested in building of the common area of ideas and it tries to unify glossary, methodology, rules and promotion of good practices. Scope directed cultures are inclusive and open for cooperation. Measures of science are totally different in both cultures- more unpredictable in the first case and very clear in the scope orientated scientific culture. For young scientists the closer community should be only a first stage in the long way to the scientific success. The article indicates virtual communities as a way for finding new possibilities of making science at the satisfactory level.
