Scribus uses ghostscript to rasterise your PDFs. Using a print or press level 
PDF from OpenOffice.org Writer should be fine. From memory that setting is 
1200dpi and I have used this option numerous times to bring in large tables 
or financial reports I have received in Word format. The output on the final 
print job (a magazine) was superb.

A tip: Exporting from Scribus, or printing for that matter, can have the exact 
page order specified, eg, 4,3,1,2 which would be a common order for basic 
imposition of a 4 page document into a double sided facing page document.
