AbstractThis paper is a representation of my developing livingeducational- theory as I examine the educational influence of my engagement with the Educational Journal of Living Theories (EJOLTs). Drawing on my values around social justice, I investigate the concept of EJOLTs as a medium for communicating the principles and practice of Living Educational Theory research. Throughout this paper, I will show how my values transform into explanatory principles by which I show that I am working towards, but not always succeeding at, enhancing my practice and developing a better understanding of it. As part of this process, I examine if EJOLTs is an environment that enhances learning and stimulates people, including myself, to be active agents in our own learning. The paper begins with an outline of some of the features that make EJOLTs a unique journal. This outline is followed by a critical exploration of my emergent living-educational-theory in terms of my role (1) as a reader of EJOLTs, (2) as a contributor to it, (3) as a reviewer of the journal and (4) as a member of the Editorial Board.
