table in a paper

Hi. I am fairly confused about putting a table in a paper (article). I have followed the usual instructions but the table seems to be always centered vertically on the page

The table environment, like the figure environment, will put its content on a new page if the content takes up more than a certain fraction of the page. The fraction is determined by `\topfraction`, `\bottomfraction`, `\textfraction`, and `\floatpagefraction`.

You can control the decision of where to put the table on the page by issuing [tbp] (default), [bp], or [htbp] as optional arguments to the table environment. However, this is rarely the desired behavior.
