# Do tables always appear at the end of elsarticle class? [closed]

I'm using \documentclass[preprint,review,12pt]{elsarticle}, my tables which I would like to appear in the middle of text goes to the very end page of my article, this is really not what I looking for as I want to give some explanation and analyze the result. What should I do, is it due to elsarticle class or what? Is there anyway to fix it if so.

• The elsarticle document class is built on the more basic article document class and doesn't contain code that would ipso facto force all floats to be output at the very end of the document. Thus, it's more likely that there's something about one or more of the table environments that's causing the problem. Please tell us more about the specifics of the document's table environments. E.g., do you load them with any particular positioning specifiers (e.g., h, t, b, p)? How tall are they? Does anything happen if you change, say, \begin{table} to \begin{table}[htbp]? – Mico Apr 11 '20 at 5:03
• @ELLA - So glad my suggestion worked out. In case you're interested in learning more about how LaTeX places "float" environments such as table and figure, I highly recommend reading the posting How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX and, in particular, Frank Mittelbach's answer. – Mico Apr 11 '20 at 6:08
