Thematic profile : Part A : Figure 4 [large size]
 
This figure shows the five thematic categories related to VETNET ECER papers. These categories are associated with groups of  descriptors which have been applied to the papers. The breakdown of categories in this figure clearly resembles the one shown for the projects (figure 2). There are only certain differences in the pattern of frequency observed among the descriptors related to these categories.

The most frequently represented category is process, which includes, above all, the descriptors work/career and learning. Next in freqency is the category system, which particularly represents the descriptor VET. The category actor mainly refers to the descriptors learner and worker; the category framework to the descriptor economy, and the category environment to the descriptor enterprise. 

As is the case for projects, each category related to the papers represents at least one major descriptor (see the top group of descriptors in figure 3). Again, the category process stands out, not only in the overall frequency of descriptor applications, but in representing quite a range of frequently applied descriptors. This particular feature will be taken up again in comparison with projects (figure 7).
