There is a sectioning  command named \paragraph in LaTeX, but by default, 
paragraphs are not numbered. You can get numbered paragraphs, by setting 
the counter "secnumdepth" to 4. If you need some special formatting, such 
as numbers sticking out of the left margin, you'll have to tweak the 
"\@startsection" command a bit. 

I don't know GOI, so I don't know the *style* of numbering in that. If you 
give specific details of how you want the numbers to be formatted, I can 
give more details. Both styles you refer to can be achieved.
