AbstractA meta-analysis is the analysis of the results of several independent studies and offers an opportunity to combine the outcomes of comparable studies. We define a Living Meta- Analysis as a qualitative meta-analysis with inclusion criteria set to Living-Educational-Theory research, and suggest two scenarios: 1. where the researcher proposes to build their own living-educational- theory (l-e-t) informed by their meta-analysis of the living-educational-theories of others, and; 2. where the researcher does not propose to build a living-educational- theory (l-e-t) but the influence of Living Educational Theory (LET) research is still prominent in the study through the life affirming energy of the other. We propose an initial classification of the LET research literature, identify and explore potential research questions, and methods of implementation of cases (1) and (2). We discuss the limitations, choosing a methodology for your research proposal and the contribution that could be made by Living Meta-Analysis to spreading the global influence of Living Educational Theory research.
