If you reduce the incoming document to text format, and if you string
together enough linked text frames in the Scribus document,  you can
then insert the entire text document. But if you try to import several
pages of pdf that won't work. 

The MSWord custom of composing each chapter separately, then bringing
them together in one master document, does not work in Scribus, unless
you bring them in as text. Even then it is better to concatenate the
chapters outside the Scribus doc as described above.
