I don't have any paper references handy. I know that Prof. Zivot has some working papers on volatility modeling on his website at the university of washington. As I recall, at least one of them includes a literature survey.

The code for the book "Bayesian Core" is here:

The code for Albert's "Bayesian Computation with R" is in the LearnBayes package on CRAN. Bayesian Core has a more in-depth discussion of Bayesian models for SV.

Both books are well worth owning as references, even though the code is available.
