In this talk we will discuss the BD2K Data Citation effort, initiated as a part of bioCADDIE. We will situate this effort in the context of formal argumentation theory as developed by modern AI researchers, and we will present current results of the Data Citation Pilot, including guidelines for publishers now implemented by Elsevier in 1,800 journals.
