I fully support Christoph's notion that Scribus is not the proper tool for a 
scientific book with lots of footnotes, cross references and literature 
references and indices.
In many cases (La)TeX is much better for scientific publications, and LyX is a 
very good entrance point which comes with a lot of good documentation in a 
couple of languages. There is a tool writer2latex which can convert your 
OO-document into LaTeX which you could edit in LyX then.

Yours sincerely
