http://dev.zotero.org/making_coins has this language:
" “COinS” stands for “ContextObject in Span.”
“ContextObject” is OpenURL jargon for the part of an OpenURL carrying the bibliographic information - basically, it’s a query string, everything that would follow the ? in a regular URL. And “span” refers here to the HTML tag <span>. It’s the ContextObject that carries the bibliographic information.
The ContextObject is very flexible, and can carry everything from a simple title and author to more obscure things like a Serial Item and Contribution Identifier (SICI).
The upshot of which is that if you stick COinS in your web page, Zotero can pull all that data out again.
