    select another judge who has not been appointed in order to request assessment of the paper in question.
 
   - If it is not possible to select 2-3 judges from among the judges recommended by the editorial members, request reappointment
    of the judges to the editorial members, and conduct the request for paper assessment according to the aforementioned
    procedure via online.

    submit the assessment results.
