Update 2041.08.04 10PM: despite its name the site is external to IBM so please take this into account when using the site.
A source of education on IBM Rational technologies are the open labs offered by IBM Rational DoD Events.
Rational Publishing Engine is among the technologies covered and the Free IBM Rational Software Open Labs – Sept 8, 9 & 10 2014 Cambridge, MA will include a lab entitled “Publish Your Rational DOORS Requirements with Rational Publishing Engine”
For a full list of the upcoming labs and the tools and technologies that they cover you should consult the List of Events.
UPDATE 2014.09.11: the schema entry point is main.xsd not oscl_rm.xsd. Thanks to Geoff and Paul for pointing this out.
The best way to extract information with RPE from DOORS is via the native DOORS driver in RPE. There is however 1 scenario where going through the DOORS native driver is very difficult to design and inefficient at runtime. The scenario is producing a document from RQM artifacts which have DOORS linked data.
This post contains the video my colleague Kumar has prepared on how to setup RPE to work with DWA as well as a brief textual description of the process.
NOTE: the information exposed by DOORS through the OSLC APIs (DWA) is limited compared to the one available through the DOORS native driver. If you use DOORS as a starting point in your report you should always use the native DOORS driver as its the best and most efficient way to get DOORS data into RPE.

In his latest Jazz.net article Marc Van Lint describes the creation and setup of a Rational Publishing Engine template to print a Test Report.
Comprehensive test plan reporting with RPE and RRDG
Enjoy the read.
The beta for CLM 2012 is now available. See Reporting and CLM 2012 Integrations for information on some of CLM’s 2012 reporting capabilities and how RRDG and RPE work in this context.
See RRDG vs RPE for a discussion on how RRDG and RPE relate.
