Provenance information about a simulation model is information about people, artifacts, and processes that have contributed to its generation. It increases trust into the quality and validity of simulation models. Model documentation standards such as the ODD protocol have a similar goal, but are mostly concerned with "what has been generated", and less with "how it has been generated". Complementing ODD with provenance information offers a more structured approach to the "what" and fills the gap regarding the "how". Thereby, simulation experiments play a crucial role, and are treated as first class artifacts, as are simulation models, data sources, and theories. The compliance to the Open Provenance Model allows using established tools for inferring the model’s origin. The approach is of particular value for models that are based on various data sources, theories, and earlier models, as we will show based on a model about migration from Senegal to Europe.
