I feel it is ok to use among for community since the word community stands for the members and we do not mean one community vis-a-vis another. Look at these examples about which one can't complain

Among the team, there is no co-operation. means among the team members
Among the Indian community, there is more diversity than unity. We are not positing one Indian Community, say the US Indian Community vs. some other Indian community like the European Indian Community.

Thanks for your explanation sir!!
I still have doubt regarding the example you have mentioned:
1. Among the team, there is no co-operation.

Suppose i really intend to say among the team (e.g. England, Pakistan, India) there is no co-operation.
I would express the sentence as:
2. Among the teams, there is no co-operation.

Now there are two sentences 1 and 2. From 1 and 2 how i would identify the sentence grammatically correct and with correct intention.
Because as per question author can also intend to say different communities and not the members of communities. Is not it creating ambiguity because as per your understanding "members of community" and as per my understanding "different community itself" and usage of communities instead of community.

Hope you get my point and further illustrate.

The question is missing the word 'members'.It should mention that among the members of the scientific community or among the scientific communities.Because if we specifically mention the community then it is quite obvious that we are indicating as a single community.

When you say teams, that indeed makes it clear there is more than one team, and these teams are converged on some common issue. If there are only two teams, we will say there is no cooperation between the two participants. If there are more than two teams, then we will there is no cooperation among these teams. Context will make this clear. Won't it?

Similarly, if there are more than one scientist community, then it will be ok to say communities. However, when the community refers to all of the scientist members from Alaska and Antarctica, why should we see them as people with different intents?
