NB: Normally, this format is used only for journals that do not have a print publication and are published only online, or that have a particular online version. For journals that have both print and online publication, use the referencing format for 'Journal article (print copy)', even if you obtained your copy of the article electronically.

"Para" in this example is used to denote the fact the journal uses paragraph numbers in place of page numbering. The ‘3’ preceeding the paragraph number informs that this is the third article in the volume, given again in the absence of page numbering to aid recall of the article.
