AFAIK there is no dominant DTD, but you can try Electronic Manuscript Standard (ISO 12083), it includes DTDs for articles, books and serials
http://www.xmlxperts.com/xmlarticledtd.htm
http://www.xmlxperts.com/xmlbookdtd.htm
http://www.xmlxperts.com/xmlserialdtd.htm
http://www.xmlxperts.com/xmlmathdtd.htm
There are tons of other DTDs that can capture article's structure, for example DocBook, OMDoc, XDF, AXML, TPML etc. 
http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/
http://www.mathweb.org/omdoc/index.html
http://xml.gsfc.nasa.gov/XDF/XDF_home.html
http://chanoir.math.siu.edu/TPML/TPMLList.html

If scientific publishers will ever switch to XML,
they will probably design their own DTDs (like it happened in LaTeX).
