    Given the Korean academic culture, these may all be instances of fraud, but there are certainly many examples of high school students in the US doing work worthy of being included as a co-author on a paper (particularly in biology, where the level of contribution for co-authorship is a very low bar). There are even plenty of instances where high school students are worthy of first authorship.

    So I don’t assume immediately that all instances in Korea are fraudulent, as so many people seem to have done.

    High school students as authors, sure, especially when funding agencies like NSF push outreach to K12 and the emphasis on science fair projects in the curriculum. Gets a little touchier when the students are the children of the PIs.

    Well, there go my plans to make my dog a co-author on a paper.
