This is a paper in a series to study vertex algebra-like structures arising from various algebras including quantum affine algebras and Yangians. In this paper, we develop a theory of what we call (weak) quantum vertex F((t))-algebras with F a field of characteristic zero and t a formal variable, and we give a conceptual construction of (weak) quantum vertex F((t))-algebras and their modules. As an application, we associate weak quantum vertex F((t))-algebras to quantum affine algebras, providing a solution to a problem posed by Frenkel and Jing. We also explicitly construct an example of quantum vertex F((t))-algebras from a certain quantum βγ-system.
