In scientific literature related to asphaliology, concerning the security science, lots of discussions are conducted as part of interdisciplinary, disciplinary and transdisciplinary research. Research areas of asphaliology are subject of this paper. The point is to study security from the point of view of many disciplines and areas. The number of disciplines that can contribute to generate new knowledge about security is not small, starting from: politology, criminology, criminalistics, psychopatology, ecology, biochemistry, genetics, geography, history, economics, linguistics, mathematics, physics, chemistry, statistics, neurology, pharmacology, psychiatry, physiology, sociology, penology, law, medicine as well as agricultural, military, technical and informaton sciences. The list of scientific areas that could be deployed in transdisciplinary researches is not definite. There is not only one approach to understand the standpoints of the interdisciplinary researches in scientific literature. Generally the differences can be distributed into two groups. The first group composes those schools and thoughts that consider security as one research area part of the "fundamental" or "parental" sciences which is issue for method application and its techniques and process could be basis for other sciences. Knowledge generated from their research belongs to the knowledge of their research corpus. Security sciences are awarded with prescriptive or melioristic character which aim is correction, improvement of security practice, on the basis of research results that are created in the frames of "fundamental" sciences. On the other hand, movement in the interests from natural to sociable sciences tends to establish bonds for mutually appreciation and interdisciplinary collaboration. Unluckily, such action in reverse direction, from social and humanistic sciences is hard to be noticed. Security and knowledge about security, precisely, difusion of knowledge among scientists in natural and social sciences can play a key role. Key words: asphaliology, area, research, fundamental sciences, discipline, interdiciplinarity, multidisciplinarity
