To eliminate embedded advertisements or navigation links (e.g. links to the related articles) from the main article, the link density and text density features were used so that / in which / where a link density above 33% or a text density less than 10.5% was used as the indicator of boilerplate.

Which phrase can relate the the explanation of the experiment to its configuration setup? I think where is the correct choice? How about so that or other alternatives?

  • I've down-voted because your grammatical question has nothing to do with the settings of an experiment. The sentence is run-on. Break it into two sentences, or use a participle phrase, "...were used, a link density above 33% or a text density below 10.5% indicating boilerplate". – Tᴚoɯɐuo Nov 11 '16 at 10:01
  • @TRomano I really don't know how to find a title for this question. I modified it to a more specific title. – Ahmad Nov 11 '16 at 10:44
  • OK. I've removed the downvote. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Nov 11 '16 at 12:16
  • The thought is murky. It is not clear how the determination that an article is boilerplate will eliminate embedded advertisements and navigation links from it. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Nov 11 '16 at 12:19
  • @tromano the article is not boilerplate but the embedded advertisement within it, which are distinguished by a higher link density. – Ahmad Nov 11 '16 at 16:55

Since you are listing the specific conditions for a result

so that
such that

are appropriate

...features were used so that a link density above 33%...
...features were used such that a link density above 33%...
...features were used where a link density above 33%...
