Errm, you can change the screen resolution with your system's control

Scribus uses always the screen resolution to render fonts: they are rendered
as vectors.
So if the fonts look blurry, all you can do is get a better display or view
at higher zoom.

For images (including PDF/PS in imageframes) Scribus uses a lowres bitmap on
That can look very blurry. You can choose to view them at full resolution,
but that might
slow Scribus down. I think there are still some opportunities to improve the
screen rendering 
of images.
