4.2.1 - The repository shall have for each AIP or class of AIPs preserved by the repository an associated definition that is adequate for parsing the AIP and fit for long-term preservation needs.

SP's Definition of AIPs explains the different components that make up an AIP within the repository. SP's ejournal AIPs are all fairly similar in composition and are therefore treated in a consistent manner.
