Description In this paper, we continue the study of injectivity for fuzzy-like structures. We extend the results of Zhang and Laan for partially ordered semigroups to the setting of S-semigroups. We first characterize injectives in the category Ssgr (<=) of S-semigroups with subhomomorphisms as S-semigroup quantales. Second, we show that every S-semigroup has an epsilon(<=)-injective hull, and give its concrete form. Third, connections to ordered semicategories and quantaloids are indicated. In particular, if S is a commutative quantale, then the injectives in the category of S-semigroups with subhomomorphisms generalize the quantale algebras introduced by Solovyov. Quantale algebras provide a convenient universally algebraic framework for developing lattice-valued analogues of fuzzification. (C) 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
