swMATH with its web interface is an open access portal for mathematical software and mathematical research data. After 5 years in operation, it provides information on more than 12,500 items in all mathematical fields and lists nearly 120,000 scientific publications citing the software (May 2016). A unique and novel feature of swMATH besides its scope is the so-called publication-based approach, which uses the information of the scientific database Zentralblatt MATH (zbMATH) for identifying mathematical software and extracting relevant information about them.
