Among the activities carried out by CIDEC, the publication of the four-monthly journal Noticias de la Economía Pública, Social y Cooperativa stands out, more popularly known as «CIDEC News», which first edition dates from June 1991.

Born with the purpose of establishing a permanent and regular communication between professionals in Social Economy and university academics world and, in general, between all those interested in this field, the publication has been consolidated over time and has gained some recognition in the sector. This recognition had its main manifestation in obtaining Pepe Miquel 2007 Award for Best Journalistic Work, granted by the Confederation of Cooperatives of the Valencian Community.

It is fair to recognise that without the involvement of a large number of people, to which for reasons of space it is impossible to quote in whole, the journal could not be published. Interest and financial support consistently offered by the Valencian Government, through its Ministry with responsibility in Social and Cooperative Economics, is also essential.
