I'm just catching this discussion in passing, but would be interested in
any pointers to information anyone turns up.

The one article that comes to mind is Free Scholarly Electronic
Journals: How Good Are They? by Fosmire and Yu in the Summer 2000 issue
of Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship. Some good
number crunching was done here and could be helpful to others doign
similar studies.

A related study that involves some good citation number crunching is by
Philip Davis: Where to spend our e-journal money? Defining a university
library's core collection through citation analysis (PDF document.)
