Abstract. The article reveals the understanding, essence and content of the researcher’s methodological culture. It represents a qualitative characteristic of the methodologically sound research activity of the subject of the study. The article reveals one of the approaches to understanding the methodological culture of the researcher based on the personal-activity approach. This is due to the fact that it is personal in nature and finds active manifestation in the process of studying a particular problem. This approach allows, from the perspective of the individual, to highlight the qualitative characteristics of the researcher and his activity manifestation in the process of solving problems of cognitive-transformative activity in accordance with the goals of the study based on the pedagogical methodology. Research activity is a purposeful activity of a researcher, which is activated by his consciousness, intellectual culture in order to meet cognitive needs and obtain new knowledge. A researcher is someone who conducts research, is engaged in scientific research. His activity requires a certain preparation, a well-thought-out logic of actions of an intellectual nature, the qualitative characteristic of which is the methodological culture of the researcher. Such a culture is often called the face of the researcher. The external component of the culture of the researcher’s self-educational activity strengthens, corrects, and develops the internal one. The researcher’s daily manifestation of his external methodological culture is evidence of his accumulation of rational experience of cognitive and transformative activity – the basis for improving internal culture. All this is evidence that there is a close relationship between the internal and external methodological culture of the researcher.

Keywords: research, researcher, self-organization, methodological culture, internal culture, external culture.
