Collective activity of researchers makes it possible to unite and accumulate individual, disparate resources of individual scholars, thereby creating the basis for further development and expansion of scientific potential. Small research groups are the environment of professional socialization of a young scholar. However the academic environment inherits a deficient capacity for agreement from the social environment, thereby provoking or aggravating the latent “brain drain” from the sphere of science.

Keywords: youth, sociology of youth, young scholar, collective action, migration, sociology of migration, small research groups.
