eqn = Module[{R},
   R[r_] = r^2 Log[r] g[r];
   r^4 R''''[r] + 2 r^3 R'''[r] - r^2 R''[r] + r R'[r] -
     L^4 r^4 R[r] == 0] // Simplify

r (L^4 r^3 g[r] Log[r]-3 (8+3 Log[r]) (g^\[Prime])[r]-r ((24+23 Log[r])  
(g^\[Prime]\[Prime])[r]+r (2 (2+5 Log[r]) (g^(3))[r]+r Log[r]  
(g^(4))[r])))==0

You still need initial conditions, and you can probably omit the factor  
r... since the expression won't be useful near r == 0, due to the Log[r]  
terms.
