It is well known that every complete lattice can be considered as a complete lattice of closed sets with respect to appropriate closure operator. The theory of q-lattices as a natural generalization of lattices gives rise to a question whether a similar statement is true in the case of q-lattices. In the paper the so-called M-operators are introduced and it is shown that complete q-lattices are q-lattices of closed sets with respect to M-operators.

Keywords: (complete) q-lattice, closure operator, M-operator.
