I have the following sentence and I need your help:

"The results reveal that in all weeks (,) the developed algorithm outperformers the algorithms from the literature."

Do I have to use a comma here? I'd appreciate every comment and would be thankful for your help.

Yes and No.

If you use the comma, then you should put it also after that, and in this case, you will have a so called helper clause - in all weeks, which just adds more specificity to the context.

If you don't have a comma after that, then you should not use a comma after weeks, as despite the fact, that the part after the possible comma can constitute an independent clause, the whole sentence is a complex sentence, having both - dependent and independent clauses, but not two independent clauses.
