In my own personal research, I came across information that was used as an answer for a question on the main site. The answer had no links or citing of the source material. It even looks as the information was copy/pasted into the answer box.

How does one go about making sure that the answer is linked to the source material?

If you know where it was copied from, then flag with "it needs moderator information" and explain it in the text box. Something like

This answer is copied from [link].

Otherwise, like the moderator curiousdannii indicates in the comments

(...) flag as Very Low Quality.

    If you're certain it was plagiarised, do this. Otherwise flag as Very Low Quality.
