In Mathematica, default frame label will put labels at the bottom and the left. The label on the left reads from the bottom to the top. I would like to also put label on the right of the frame, but this label also reads from bottom to top. How can I make the right label read from top down?

Welcome to Mathematica.SE! I suggest the following: 1) As you receive help, try to give it too, by answering questions in your area of expertise. 2)Read the FAQs! 3) When you see good Q&A, vote them up by clicking the gray triangles, because the credibility of the system is based on the reputation gained by users sharing their knowledge. ALSO, remember to accept the answer, if any, that solves your problem, by clicking the checkmark sign` – chris Nov 1 '12 at 9:09

You can simply Rotate the label by 180 degrees:

Plot[, {x, 0, 1}, Frame -> True, 
    FrameLabel -> {"foo", "bar", "baz", Rotate["qux", 180 Degree]}]
