SetOptions[LogPlot, FrameTicks->{Automatic, Automatic, None, None}];

works for me.  From memory, the order is {Bottom, Left, Top, Right}.

"Automatic" can be substituted with 
* LogScale for logarithmic ticks
* PiScale for ticks in multiples/divisors of Pi
* LinearScale for the obvious
or any other function you want.
