create a PDF from publisher and load each page of the pdf into the
scribus file.
you should probably try to get one pdf per publisher page, but you can
also load the whole pdf in each image frame and, then, choose the page
to be shown (probably in the image tab of the properties palette).

make sure that you check the "experimental pdf embedding" while
exporting yourself your work to pdf.

this is not a good way to do it! but probably the best way to solve
your problem...
