These "hybrid" research communities form their own value patterns, criteria, modes of evaluating results, and possibly reputational systems and career patterns, which in part are distinct from those of the academic research communities centered on disciplines. The latter adhere to the ethos of the Republic of Science, which gives primacy to peer review and the determination of research agendas ideally in interaction with colleagues across the world in unconstrained dialogue. In fact, there are power stmggles between different schools of thought; but there is still a common interest in basic research.

This is not an insignificant question.
