    C.H. Doevendans, S. Malfroy 2003. Academic discipline and profession.
    USO-Built Report Series 2:71-77. The development of the USO-Built organisation may be described in terms of H.S. Toulmin's work with the International Research Units (IRU) as the fora of discussion and scientific development, and USO-Built as a whole as their ecological niche. Both appear to be essential to the development of the disciplines of building sciences. USO-Built is in potential strong, but currently not strong enough. We have to better clarify our position and meaning as an essential part of the scientific or academic profession of the disciplines of architecture, urbanism and other building sciences. The criteria Toulmin for a compact discipline, may help us to set the standard for our unfolding activities and enterprises inside USOBuilt to develop into a discipline.
