​​Not really, what it is is a citation management tool similar to EndNote.

So, it does not store a physical copy of a document, it just assists in creating and stores the bibliographic information that would allow you (or other interested parties) to find the cited material at a later time.

You can create tags and folders and collections.

For example:

All IBSS6 publications (that I’ve created a record for):

https://www.zotero.org/ibss6/items

Subset of full collection: journal articles

https://www.zotero.org/ibss6/items/collectionKey/4HQNA7HP

Subset of journal article collection: 2014 journal articles

https://www.zotero.org/ibss6/items/collectionKey/3UEID4M4

Thematic collection: Items tagged with "Panicum virgatum."

https://www.zotero.org/ibss6/items/tag/Panicum%20virgatum

I do think you can "attach" documents such as journal article PDFs.

Since it is a citation, zotero is useful for "non traditional" sources like Web pages.

About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
