Including undergraduate students in research projects may be seen as a noble and beneficial initiative that forms a nexus of teaching, research, and innovation. In this presentation, I introduce a case study based on three prominent student projects I directed between 2020 - 2023. All three projects resulted in formal and well-received publications, two (2020 and 2021) in books with Routledge: 'Interviews with North Korean Defectors: from Kim Shin-jo to Thae Yong-ho' (2021), 'The History of Hallyu: from the Kim Sisters to BTS' (2023). Through this case study, I aim to highlight the ups and downs of student research projects ('students as partners'), ranging from high student satisfaction and mutual benefit to complex ethical issues such as navigating the divide between 'fair' authorship and acknowledgment and real-world publisher requirements and expectations. I argue that academia and publishers have a long way to go in terms of facilitating an environment that would allow for the achievement of the 'students as partners' ideal. Finally, I provide several suggestions from my experience as a facilitator of three successful projects with the hope of improving both student and teacher satisfaction.
