Earlier in the year, Mikael Häggström personally paid 291 USD, for journal membership in Crossref and the domain name wikijournal.org (both for 2017). In addition, 210 USD will be paid for membership in COPE. All these payments were funded by a grant from the Wikimedia Foundation to Mikael Häggström personally. Therefore, both the revenue and expenditure were 0 USD in 2016 for the journal itself.
