Why isn't the regular output suitable for publication? It is a 2D image.

You could get higher quality by using the options MaxRecursions first, and
then PlotPoints if necessary. The only thing about the plot example you give
is that there are too many ticks for the purpose. You could remedy that by
using custom ticks.

Otherwise, I don't see why ordinary Mathematica graphics output isn't good
enough for publication. I think people use it all the time.

Hello,
My aim is to produce vector-quality 2D representation of Graphics3D
for publication purposes. I would wish to have a general solution but
if it is impossible in the new version of Mathematica I should
consider only my particular case. My Graphics3D consists of a smooth
line representing the solution of a system of differential equations
(and axes, of course). So it seems to be a simple case. Is it possible
to convert this 3D graphics in 2D format preserving text as text (not
converting text in vector lines)?

As an suitable example one may use Graphics3D generated by
ParametricPlot3D[{Cos[\[Theta]], Sin[\[Theta]],
  Sqrt[\[Theta]]}, {\[Theta], 0, 6 Pi}]
