If you are free to format your references to packages and functions as you
please, you might follow the convention used by the Journal of Statistical

you can do this by adding the following to your latex file:

\newcommand{\pkg}[1]{{\normalfont\fontseries{b}\selectfont #1}}

then you can refer to R as \proglang{R}, to packages with e.g.,
\pkg{packagename} and to functions/other code as \code{functionname}.
