I don't know of any references, but maybe you can somehow "verify the
accuracy of R" by running some analysis with the "NIST Statistical
Reference Datasets"; the URL is http://www.itl.nist.gov/div898/strd/ 
So maybe you can run the analyses mentioned there and say that R
(hopefully) returned the correct results.

Hope this helps,
