    This paper utilizes odds ratios of topical words to model cumulative citation counts in a corpus of Czech sociological articles. It builds atop a novel method for topic modeling based on hierarchical stochastic block models and notes why network based topic models may be a more productive approach if the output of topic models is expected to serve as an input to further statistical models. The demonstrated technique shows that topics of articles have significant effects on citations and possibly interact with other important variables, such as the gender or number of authors.
