It's not a pure org solution, but I'd go this way:

o have each "article" in a separate org file - export each one to HTML
(that can be scripted easily) - you get the article TOCs for free.

o have a separate top-level org (or HTML) file that contains the TOC with
pointers to the "articles". The production of this file can be scripted
as well: get the #+TITLEs of each "article" file and turn them into

The whole thing can be wrapped up in a Makefile to automate the process.

Navigation (prev/next/top) may be a problem but it shouldn't be too hard
