There is a strong interest and many initiatives worldwide to ensure that any piece of software - and data - used in research, contributing to papers or in grant applications, is properly accounted for and receives the corresponding credit, including to their creators and contributors. However, there is a flip side: software often implements

Sometimes, this use of existing material is referenced in the documentation or in a paper associated to the software, but the software itself remains largely references-free, and the sources it uses, unaccredited for.
