Yes, it’s behind a paywall, but if you don’t have access to it, you can ILL it.  It’s a good article describing an interesting method for predicting usage of a journal based on global impact factor, local citations, and the Eigenfactor.  Unfortunately, a librarian needs access to Journal Citation Reports and Scopus, so it’s not a feasible method for many smaller (and not-so-small) libraries.  But at least there is some solid research that could be called upon.
