A characterization of partial metrizability is given which provides a partial solution to an open problem stated by Künzi in the survey paper Nonsymmetric Topology ([Kün93], problem 7 1 ). The characterization yields a powerful tool which establishes a correspondence between partial metrics and special types of valuations, referred to as Q-valuations (cf. also [Sch00] ). The notion of a Q-valuation essentially combines the well-known notion of a valuation with a weaker version of the notion of
